For 16 years, Delivery has become one of the leading freight companies that form the transportation market. Deputy Chairman of the Board Andriy Ivasiv explained the secret of the company's success and shared his first achievements in 2018.
Andriy said that success is largely due to the correctly chosen strategy of Delivery that is based on a clear vision of its client. "In the transportation niche, we focus on the segment of the consolidated cargoes and pallet transportation, which constitutes 97% of the company's transportations. The prevalent number of our services is tooled for businesses, whose average dispatch at one time has already reached 237 kg" - Mr. Ivasiv comments.
From January to April 2018, Delivery expanded its zone of presence at a rapid pace: 11 new cargo warehouses equipped with the necessary loading and unloading equipment were opened in industrial areas with easy access to goods lines. This conscious policy of the company allows to free up the traditional infrastructure for freight traffic and increase the speed of transportation for the client. Having expanded the representative network to 303 warehouses, Delivery became the operator with the most developed geography of freight offices in Ukraine.
Proportionally with the area of storage facilities, the area accessible to customers under Secure Storage has also increased. The demanded service is now used by more than 80 business customers, and the number of them is constantly growing.
It should be noted that in the 1st quarter of 2018 the share of the company's targeted services increased by 11%. Growth, in comparison with the same period in 2017, can be attributed to the introduction of new services: the possibility of ordering a vehicle with a tail lift, which is especially demanded for the transportation of pallets, as well as a standardized service for the delivery of oversized cargo.
The company pays special attention to security matters. Starting from the wide diversity of a special package for freight transportations (metal and furniture containers, pallet collar) - to daily control of the share of loss and damage to cargo, which in January-April 2018 amounted to only 0.0042% and 0.1075% respectively. For the insurance of transportation, a partnership was concluded with IC Kvorum, which is part of the Delivery group of companies. It compensates losses for cargo with an estimated value of UAH 1001. Real insurance allowed to increase the share of cargo insured in Delivery up to 65%. Its estimated value exceeds UAH 600-700 million per month, which is only a part of the real potential of the market.
The complex of measures for strengthening the niche of freight transportation shows its effectiveness: the daily amount of consolidated cargoes that passes through Delivery in the 1st quarter increased by 10%, pallets - by 48%. "These figures assure us of the correctness of the chosen strategy. Clients whose shipments go beyond the ordinary parcel, turn to Delivery for a full range of services: for available special packaging and for outsourcing of personnel in the client's warehouses. After all, we possess all the necessary tools for quality transportation of the combined cargo: from 100% of cargo warehouses with special equipment - to transportation of inconvenient oversized cargoes," - Andriy Ivasiv summarizes.
