In the fast-paced world of logistics, where efficient and timely delivery of goods is essential for supply chain success, understanding and effectively utilizing carrier performance metrics is crucial. For logistics managers, these indicators are key tools for monitoring, analyzing, and optimizing the various aspects of their operations, from delivery times to customer satisfaction.

Against this backdrop, our media partner Parcel Monitor recently released an analysis highlighting five key metrics that are essential for logistics managers to monitor and improve their operations. These include parcel transit time, which measures the days needed for shipments to reach their destinations and is fundamental for reducing costs and improving efficiency, especially in last-mile deliveries.

The First Attempt Delivery Rate (FADR) is another critical metric, indicating the percentage of deliveries completed on the first try. A high FADR is indicative of efficient last-mile operations, enhancing customer satisfaction and boosting market share. On-time pickups and deliveries are also central, with industry standards reflecting high expectations for timeliness, directly impacting customer trust and operational success.
