Real-time information on shipment detention, delivery optimization, and ETA

On-time delivery is a critical concern for food and beverage companies. They are looking for ways to optimize delivery routes, calculate delivery detention, and increase predictability of delivery windows. Real-time visibility for delivery vehicles is essential for analyzing and planning delivery routes. Data on detention time of trucks at warehouses — loading and unloading — makes it possible to estimate delivery windows better.

Current monitoring solutions, such fleet management systems, are inadequate because they are limited to providing current movement data and not historical information such as patterns of excessive speed or reckless driving. Additionally, fleet management data may not be available for trucks or trailers that are leased.

Only a system that analyzes real-time data in the context of historic data provides the complete set of information required to optimize the delivery approach to small and large distributors.

Roambee's portable vehicle traceability solution enables food and beverage companies to manage deliveries, especially using leased vehicles. Roambee's next-generation technology and pay-as-you-go business model make shipment monitoring flexible and affordable.

Optimize delivery routes. With the Bee portable tracker embedded within a shipment, you can collect extensive route data, including stops made and distance traveled. This information can be leveraged to determine best routes and optimize delivery schedules.
