In the world of logistics and transportation, transit time refers to the interval needed for a shipment to reach its destination after being picked up from the point of departure. As many shipper surveys have shown, the length of transit time, along with its reliability are two of the most important variables influencing freight transport today. Moreover, reducing transit time is an excellent way to enhance customer experience since faster transit time would mean shorter waiting time for shoppers following an online purchase. Considering how time is money in today’s society, faster delivery would aid in both customer acquisition and customer retention in the long run.
