Logistics

Pin Drop is a real-time tracking and route planning tool that helps logistics companies optimise their routes and improve their delivery times. Using GPS data vehicles can adjust routes on the fly. This means that logistics companies can avoid traffic and other delays, and make sure that their vehicles are always on the most efficient route.

With Pin Drop, we're not only doing things right, but we're doing the right things, like optimizing our routes and improving our delivery times.

Dropping pins and tagging them on a map can also be useful in the logistics business in several ways:

  • Route optimisation: Logistics companies can use pin-dropping to plan and optimise routes for their fleet of vehicles. By dropping pins for each stop, they can quickly see the most efficient route, reducing travel time and fuel costs.
  • Asset tracking: Logistics companies can use pin-dropping to track the location of their assets such as trucks, trailers, and containers. By tagging the pins with notes, they can quickly see the status of each asset and make informed decisions about scheduling and routing.
  • Real-time monitoring: Logistics companies can use pin-dropping to monitor their fleet in real-time, which can help to improve the accuracy of ETAs, and provide better customer service.
  • Depot management: Logistics companies can use pin-dropping to manage their depots and warehouses. By dropping pins on a map, they can quickly see the location of each depot, the available space and the inventory at each location.
  • Delivery management: Logistics companies can use pin-dropping to manage and monitor delivery routes. By dropping pins on a map, they can see where deliveries are happening, the status of the deliveries, and also plan for more efficient routes.

Overall, pin-dropping can be a valuable tool for logistics companies to optimise routes, track assets, monitor their fleet, manage depots and warehouses and also manage deliveries. This can help to improve the efficiency and accuracy of logistics operations, and provide better service to customers.
