The client asked us to lead the selection process of a Track & Trace solution to address multiple situations depending on the fulfillment location (supplier, DC, hyper, super…), type of goods (food or non-food items), volumes of delivery (small, large…), service required by customer (express, same day, next day…), distance of customer location from fulfillment location, carrier capacity, transport mode (inhouse, crowdsourced, outsourced). During the assessment, we run simulations with different scenarios in vendor’s free trial in order to check that finalists solutions really covered our client needs.
The client chose their Track & Trace tool for last mile deliveries reaching the first go-live in Al Saqr hypermarket located in Abu Dhabi and then in Dubai and the rest of stores in the region.
