How To Use Chatbots For Logistics And Transportation: New Opportunities and Benefits

Conversational Artificial Intelligence is shaping the future of Logistics Interactions. With Chatbots and multi-channels integrations, businesses can meet their customer’s expectations by resorting to a new and improved way of interaction. Therefore, more businesses in Logistics are adopting Logistics Chatbots and leaving traditional transactions behind in the dustbin. This increases efficiency across the entire logistics value chain.

Let’s see how chatbots help to improve business and customer engagement in these industries – logistics and transportation. 

 

REAL-TIME ORDER TRACKING

In logistics, the confidence of order visibility and its status is important in customer service. Bots avoid the long offline queue and provide real-time tracking of the order. Instead of offline walking to places, the customer can simply use the messenger and ask the chatbot, “Can you share the shipment status now?”

FAQ

Mostly each logistic and transportation application have the FAQ with providing automated answers on the common questions. It’s a good opportunity to reload the workflow of call centers and let them concentrate on non-routine and more important tasks. 

SHIPPING CONDITIONS

Besides FAQs, the end-client gets the opportunity to prepare the things he wants to transport or get according to the internal rules of the logistics company. This avoids situations where the clients get uncomfortable conditions for transportation in delivery offices.

ASSIGNING TASKS

When the chatbot gets a request to make the transportation, or the user has already registered a shipment, it assigns further actions to the appropriate staff. Also, the chatbot informs the end-client about this request status. Moreover, the chatbot is able to complete the simple and routine tasks by itself.

BOOK DELIVERY

The chatbot helps to book the place for shipment, time and tracking map online. Users provide all information regarding items he wants to transport, make payments online and the courier just takes the pack without filling any papers.

FEEDBACK & COMPLAINTS

Create the possibility to leave feedback, or send a request to improve the product or service. We recommend making a chatbot for accepting the issue and showing its status. When the client feels that sweet calling, he’ll come back to you.

AMEND AN ORDER

The end-customer can change the delivery via messenger, just by putting in the tracking number. Chatbot helps to review the conditions and provide status. 

As a personal assistant and corporate helper, the chatbot provides a quick service and is always ready to supply the necessary information and conduct simple tasks. Contact us and let the virtual assistant complete a portion of routine work and make your internal staff and clients happy.

Personalized content makes sure the client that vendor cares about his needs. This journey starting from awareness up to decision the clients take before the purchase. Good content makes this way shorter and leads to a decision from the “ready” client. Throughout this journey, accompany the clients with relevant information to help them make the right decisions.

E-commerce platform

Direct sales are the main way to monetize your chatbot and grow revenue. Warning: we don’t recommend to make an Aliexpress-like platform, but use a chatbot for selling a few main services. Besides direct sales, the chatbot makes cross-selling (based on previous chatbot purchase and behavior history). As an additional option, implement a payment system like Visa (we recently implemented a few projects with Visa and have satisfied clients) and provide the full sales cycle with a chatbot (saving money and clients’ time). 

Feedback and complaints to increase loyalty

Have you ever seen that dissatisfied client come back to the vendor again? That’s like a piece of art! Create the possibility to leave feedback or send a request to improve the product or service.

The first challenge is massively random listings with providers that you find in Google Search. After you find the listings you need to filter them by country, price, portfolio, etc.

 

Unfortunately, some of the listings do not contain company portfolios that represent them solely as a trusted chatbot agency. Sometimes information (described in the listing) about the companies are taken from not-sso reliable sources like forums etc. All the data need to be confirmed by a company representative or taken from reliable sources: website, social media accounts or conversation with the founders, sales or marketers. I am sure you might be asking me which listing are reliable.Well, wonder no further!

 

We have been working with these listings a few years already and gained lots of leads and clients from these channels. So, take a look at the top listings of chatbot agencies.
