Alternative solutions to building your own fleet

Before diving into what Metrobi offers for B2B companies, let’s clarify what one should expect from a delivery fleet.


The most important feature of a delivery fleet is reliability. You need to deliver on time, always, to maintain your reputation. To achieve this, you need to build your delivery team of reliable and professional people who respect their duties and pay attention to their schedules.


Your team needs to look and act professionally when they visit customers. This is very important because they are the faces of your business when they are with the customers, and the impression they make on your customer will cause your business to grow or fail.


The final key feature of a good delivery fleet is efficiency. You need to deliver without wasting a lot of time or traveling a lot of miles. Also, you need to ask, does everyone work equally in your delivery team or do you fail to assign enough tasks for each member in your team? If some people overwork and others stay idle, it means your work efficiency is failing. Likewise, you need to load your delivery vehicles equally. Overloading harms your vehicles. To achieve work efficiency, you need to review your operations.
