Exception Management in the last-mile

Exception management is an essential part of the supply chain, and same-day delivery logistics plays a crucial role. With Curri, companies can react quickly and efficiently to exceptional circumstances that don't fit their typical LTL operations. With same-day delivery, businesses can respond quickly to supply chain disruption, matching the demand curves created in today's volatile markets.

By providing timely responses to exception orders, companies ensure that customer satisfaction is maximized by never leaving them waiting for their products. This is why same-day delivery is so valuable: they prioritize exception management for each customer, enabling faster delivery of single pieces or partial pallets. Best of all, exception management can be automated with same-day delivery logistics solutions, helping you track packages and routes while keeping your customers in the loop.

What Is a Delivery Exception?

A delivery exception occurs when an item or shipment does not arrive at its intended destination as expected. Exceptions can cause big headaches for distributors, who are dealing with a huge number of deliveries across multiple carriers every day. Delivery exceptions are caused by a variety of problems that can occur during the shipping process, such as packages sent to the wrong addresses, missing packages or items, damage caused during transit, and even delays triggered by traffic or weather.

The greatest challenge is that many exceptions go undetected until it's too late - when corrective action could have prevented bigger issues down the line. To avoid this, distributors need real-time visibility and tracking of each package so they can be aware of any errors ASAP and address them quickly. By arming themselves with Curri’s comprehensive real-time insights, distributors are able to identify and address exceptions in a timely manner.

Why Do Exceptions Derail Delivery Operations?

Delivery operations are often derailed when there are exceptions. Even minor delays can lead to disruptions in an otherwise efficient delivery process. This results in longer turnaround times, higher costs, and sometimes inferior service quality due to operational errors. As such, it is critical for businesses to closely monitor exceptional cases within their delivery process in order not to jeopardize organizational performance. To successfully manage these exceptions and avoid having them derail delivery operations, companies can rely on Curri's same-day delivery to be proactive and prepared to reduce shipment issues.
