Mobile messaging for logistics

Make operations run more smoothly with text messaging

The world is increasingly dependent on the timely and efficient deliveries performed by logistics companies; but the system is still far from perfect. It's still all too easy, with the busy lifestyles that everyone leads, to miss said deliveries; leading to the irritation of having to pick deliveries up from the main depot, or even worse, having to repeat the order after the original consignment has been returned to sender.

For this system to operate in a more efficient manner, a more effective means for logistics companies to communicate with clients is necessary, which is a niche that the logistics text messaging service offered by us, here at Textlocal, is more than able to help you with.

Text messaging is instant, cost-effective and reaches people directly. Communicating with drivers on the road and providing real-time updates on delivery statuses to customers is made easy with text messaging.

Quick and Easy Multiple Contacts

I used Txtlocal whilst Operations Manager to keep our bus drivers up to date on issues such as road closures, traffic delays and positive feedback. With over a hundred drivers it was easy to import their mobile numbers from my contact database, type the message and schedule a send for a later time. Add to that the fact that each txt is cheap and it is a great package. I now use Txtlocal with my bowling club to let them all know of competitions coming up and deadlines for rounds to be completed. Less numbers involved but very effective. I particularly love the ease of typing up the message from the keyboard rather than a phone.
