Grocery Gateway, a Canadian online grocery home delivery service operated by Longo Brothers Fruit Market Inc, is using Cube Route's on-demand logistics management system. A combination of routing, tracking, planning, and dispatching functionality provided by Cube Route enables Grocery Gateway to guarantee on-time deliveries to the door within a specific 90-minute window. Grocery Gateway's delivery fleets make close to 500 stops per day to serve 15,000 customers.
The Cube Route Visibility and Routing Solution provides Grocery Gateway with a real-time view into its delivery fleets. With access to historical delivery data that can be analyzed, Grocery Gateway can now also maximize its route efficiency. Cube Route also provides Grocery Gateway with a dedicated routing consultant as part of its outsourced Routing Service. The consultant is responsible for optimizing the online grocer's daily routes by taking into account geographic zones, time windows, and other physical constraints. Since deploying the Cube Route system, Grocery Gateway has improved its on-time delivery performance by 14% and is exceeding its yearly stops per paid hour by 12.4%.
