Manpower Solutions Helped Logistics Leader Overcome Business Challenges, Increase Revenue by 40%
The right workforce and talent solutions need exceptional niche knowledge, extensive resources, and outstanding recruiters.
A reputed nationwide logistics company was struggling with a spell of shortage of driver and delivery personnel. The problems were affecting its plans to fuel revenue generation in the new locations where they made a market entry. Business generation was taking a back seat in the efforts to solve staffing shortages and customer complaints about delays.
The workforce planning and recruitment solutions offered by Alliance Recruitment Agency enabled the client to overcome all labor and workforce challenges and the commencement of business generation opportunities that led to a 40% increase in revenues from the geographies.
The client, an international courier and parcel company, was facing a spell of shortage of licensed drivers and delivery personnel, leading to an increase in customer complaints about delays.
The reasons behind this problem were many: a sudden increase in delivery orders from new clients, an increase in driver injury rate because of rains and bad road conditions, difficulties in finding temporary drivers and delivery personnel to meet the peak demand situations.
The client required the following solutions from Alliance Recruitment Agency:
- Fleet of temporary drivers and delivery people
- Better workforce planning to have a constant staff of drivers hired through contractual models.
- Supply Chain and HR Managers for better management of their expanding orders and customer demands.
- An IT partner to create a system that digitally tracks driver and delivery person availability, productivity, service quality, and complaints.
The major challenges were the following:
- Finding and hiring 200+ temporary licensed driver and delivery personnel within a week
- Lack of a well-designed workforce planning system due to decentralized, unstructured, delivery personnel management records in silos
- Finding HR managers with 10+ years of experience in the logistics industry, especially in courier and parcel delivery in target locations the client faced problems, and good competency in HR logistics technology tools, fluency in 3-4 languages.
- Helping in the hiring of senior Supply Chain managers within a month for posting at regions that were unattractive owing to the locations being small hilly towns with very little to offer in terms of better lifestyle needs.
