Do you know how much your "free" delivery costs you?


There are reporting tools available to determine the costs of delivery based on the truck used, the mileage, the stop time, additional costs for a helper or additional equipment needed (boom, forklift, conveyor, etc.).

Cool! Where can we find these tools?


@Andrew_Gibson funny, I just happen to know a guy who has this capability in the delivery management solution his company provides :wink:

Kidding aside, this is a standard reporting function in our ODT software, and this is one of many reasons for distributors to look at a delivery management solution. Since we can track deliveries, driver stop times, mileage, etc., we have a ton of data at our fingertips that factors in operational costs. ERP/POS systems can calculate margins, but they don’t include delivery costs to give you the true NET margins!
