DRIVE Software Solutions, a leading provider of fleet management technology, has announced that in partnership with Rivervale Leasing, ODO is supporting the optimisation of Paack’s network as the company delivers on its commitment to a sustainable last-mile delivery solution.
Paack understands that inadequate delivery experiences hinder online sales growth and customer loyalty. They believe existing last-mile delivery companies are incapable of providing a truly customer-centric approach.
The last-mile delivery company are aiming to disrupt the status quo and raise the bar of what customers and retailers can expect from deliveries. Paack aims to ensure every delivery is sustainable and convenient.
Paack currently operates in more than 80 European cities with a flexible model that enables a customer-controlled delivery solution, allowing them to choose their preferred time slot to receive parcels. This creates unprecedented results through basket conversion, loyalty, repeat purchase, acquisition, brand image and customer satisfaction.
Paack operates with a network of electric vehicles (EV) that supports its mission of becoming the first certified net zero parcel delivery network. It already operates a carbon-neutral last-mile network in the UK.
To boost the development, the company has partnered with Rivervale. Established in 2001, Rivervale is the UK’s leading vehicle leasing company, with a five-star rating on TrustPilot.
Rivervale provides Paack with an end-to-end solution. This covers all elements of the fleet from negotiating preferred manufacturer terms and competitive finance rates, through advising on a fleet of electric vans which are fit for purpose across the range, load capacities and charging, through to maintenance management, underpinned by the ODO Fleet Management platform.
ODO’s functionality allows businesses, leasing brokers, dealers and rental companies to monitor and understand the use of vehicles, deliver efficiencies across the fleet and support the transition to electric vehicles.
James Lovett, Paack’s UK general manager, said: “The Rivervale and ODO partnership gives us great confidence that our network is self-sufficient and future-proofed, enabling us to deliver on our promise to consumers and our commitment to the environment. Partnering with leading fleet management experts allows us to focus our energy on enhancing the delivery experience even further”.
Jaymie Stanbrook, Rivervale Leasing fleet manager, said: “We’re proud to be working with such an innovative and forward-looking business like Paack. It’s a reflection of the effort we have put into building out the Rivervale Fleet Management solution which is underpinned by ODO”.
Robert Gorby, DRIVE chief commercial officer, said: “With the explosion in growth of online sales, logistics companies must ensure they fully optimise their fleet to enhance utilisation and reduce downtime. We’re delighted to play an important role in the growth of Paack in the UK as they deliver the future of last-mile logistics”.
