Why Your Dallas Retail Business Needs Same-Day Delivery 

Running a retail business has many challenges, especially in the Dallas–Fort Worth-Arlington Metroplex where competition is stiff and customer expectations are high. In today’s retail landscape, you’re not only competing with local businesses but also Internet retailers. In order to stay competitive with the likes of Amazon and other mega retailers, it's crucial that you find a way to differentiate.

The “instant gratification” advantage you have over online retailers is losing its edge as many of them – including Target and Amazon – are upping the ante and offering same-day delivery on most orders.

The solution? Offer a superior same-day delivery option to your customers to create the ultimate luxury retail experience:

• A survey by Accenture found that 64% consumers rated speed of delivery as an influencing factor in their purchasing decision, but only 15% of retailers worldwide offered same-day delivery.
• In a survey by Dropoff, 60% of consumers have abandoned a shopping cart due to slow delivery options.
• In that same survey, 46% of consumers said, “I expect companies to have much faster delivery times than I did a year ago.”

There’s tremendous opportunity in expanding your client base and increasing your sales by adding a same-day delivery option. Where other retailers are falling short, you have the opportunity to sail ahead. Whether your customers prefer to shop online, order via the phone or make their purchases in-store, a same-day delivery option gives them the convenience that will augment the shopping experience and ultimately increase customer loyalty.

However, implementing this “last mile logistic” can be complicated, especially in areas such as the Dallas Metroplex, where there's a lot of ground to cover. As a local business, it can be overwhelming trying to devise an economic model for same-day delivery. Most options are simply not sustainable.

Good news is, you don’t have to go at it alone. Partnering with a same-day, on demand delivery service allows you to add this faster option without putting undue stress on your resources.

At Dropoff, we help local businesses make same-day delivery a viable service option with our fleet of vehicles and drivers, available 24/7/365. From West Village, to The Shops at Park Lane, to the Galleria and beyond, Dropoff is familiar with Dallas' retail landscape.

Our API integration means you can connect your retail POS or warehouse management software to our back-end so we can handle your delivery seamlessly and without further effort on your end.

After we pick up your package, you can easily check where it is and when it is set to arrive with our real-time tracking system. Once it's been delivered, we will send you a signature verification email to confirm that it arrived on time and in good condition.

Traffic in Dallas can be challenging at times. Our delivery Agents drive cars, SUVs, and cargo vans – which are great for navigating the crowded metropolitan area during peak hours.

These smaller vehicles also mean packages are handled in small batches, so the risk of your items being lost or damaged is vastly reduced.

During delivery, our Agents are there to represent your brand. They have extensive customer service experience and will do everything in their power to provide your customers with top-notch service.

If you’re ready to get more customers and boost your revenue, our team at Dropoff is ready to help. Find out more about our flexible scheduling, upfront pricing and real-time tracking here.
