LET’S UNPACK LOGISTICS:

Three gold-standard types and how they work for your delivery

Yes you can run a world-class native delivery system no matter what resources you have to make a meal travel. With three logistics roads to choose from, there’s a path to success for all.

START WITH THE RIGHT BASE

Control of your marketplace

WHAT YOU NEED:

An online ordering marketplace—one that’s owned by your restaurant and hosted through your website for guests to order directly.

WHAT A NATIVE MARKETPLACE ALLOWS:

A website that lets guests order + the system that enables your restaurant to receive orders.

WHY NATIVE:

1. You’ll have a complete picture of your business, with greater control of it.
2. You’ll be in a stronger position to deliver food to bellies.

This is where logistics kick in.

Chew on this:

You don’t need in-house logistics to build a strong delivery operation—any logistics solution that’s right for your business and connected to your owned online marketplace is considered native.

MAKE YOUR FOOD MOVE:

Three types of logistics
They’re the gold-standard solutions for restaurants of all flavors and resources. Each logistics type optimizes a delivery cycle. Each is a party. Choose your party.

First Party:

IN-HOUSE

Your own fleet of drivers and vehicles gets food moving.

Second Party:

CO-OPS

You partner with other local restaurants to deliver.

Third Party:

OUTSIDE SERVICES

You outsource delivery to get it over the finish line.

EXPERT RECOMMENDATIONS:

In quick bites
Deciding which type of logistics makes sense for your restaurant boils down to four things: budget. resources. location and brand ethos. Not sure which logistics party is your party?
