How Stallion Express Mastered Medical Delivery with e-Courier

Achieving a stellar 99.99% delivery rate and boosting profits can seem like a lofty dream for many, but for Stallion Express, it became a reality.

Understanding Stallion Express

Stallion Express, a forerunner in the medical courier industry, faced a dilemma shared by many: maximizing delivery efficiency without hurting profits. As they expanded their reach, delivering over 2 million parcels annually to 1000+ nursing homes across 20 states, this task grew exponentially complex. Here’s how they conquered this challenge with support from e-Courier.

Stallion’s Challenges

e-Courier’s Tailored Solutions

After extensive market research and evaluating various TMS options, e-Courier emerged as the game-changer for Stallion Express. Here’s how e-Courier helped:

Bolstering Customer Connections

At the heart of e-Courier's transformative approach is an emphasis on integrations. By allowing automatic task transmissions, both the service provider and the customer save precious time. e-Courier boasts thousands of such integrations, opening doors to an expansive network. This vast array ensures that businesses can find the exact type of integration they require, catering especially to larger customers who prioritize these integrations.

In addition to technical integrations, e-Courier delves into custom processes. By understanding the unique demands of each client, they can offer tailored solutions that truly resonate. Whether it's the intricate chain of custody, the vital proof of delivery process, or any other niche requirement, e-Courier crafts a process tailored to fit.

But what truly stands out is the transparency e-Courier brings. Clients are no longer in the dark, unsure about their deliveries. They receive timely status updates, ranging from order processing, dispatching, pickup times, ETAs, and more. By offering a comprehensive view of the delivery process – right down to the driver's whereabouts and identity – e-Courier fosters trust and reinforces relationships.

Enhancing Supply Chain Transparency

In the world of deliveries, information is power. e-Courier places this power directly in the hands of businesses. With automatic reports, businesses gain vital insights into their operations: understanding profit margins, tracking customers with overdue payments, evaluating on-time delivery performances, and more. Moreover, a paperless audit trail simplifies compliance and review processes.

Proactiveness is key. With e-Courier, businesses can preemptively manage orders, ensuring they're addressed before any delays arise. By monitoring driver routes, assessing route densities, and sending out timely alerts, e-Courier ensures operations remain streamlined and efficient.

Automating for Efficiency

Repetitive tasks, if left unchecked, can bog down any business. e-Courier’s solution? Comprehensive automation. From the moment an order enters the system to its final invoice issuance, e-Courier ensures minimal manual intervention. This includes automatically dispatching tasks to drivers, sending out real-time notifications and alerts, and delivering Proof Of Deliveries (PODs) to clients.

Financial transactions too are automated. Whether it's rate calculations, driver payments, or invoice dispatch, e-Courier handles it all. With an end-to-end software approach, businesses can focus on what they do best, leaving the operational complexities to e-Courier. And the best part? Customizing delivery processes becomes a breeze, ensuring teams can adapt without extensive retraining or drastic operational shifts.
