Harness the power of a BODFS model for your omnichannel retail strategy

Customers want choice and convenience. And there’s nothing more convenient than having an item delivered to your doorstep that same day. As retailers launch ship-from-store and bring products closer to their customers, the more likely they are to drive down e-commerce shipping costs and shorten delivery windows.

When considering e-commerce shipping solutions, retailers can utilize a Buy Online, Deliver From Store (“BODFS”) model to optimize their entire omnichannel retail strategy. A ship-from-store model allows retailers to:

  • Reduce the overall cost of last-mile logistics
  • Shorten delivery windows for any product, including oversized items
  • Increase customer satisfaction scores by offering flexible and convenient same-day delivery
  • Remove store distance as a purchase barriers

HOW ROADIE DELIVERS FOR BUSINESS

Launch BODFS anywhere in weeks

Company
A large enterprise retailer that has hundreds of brick & mortar locations and a robust online presence with thousands of orders purchased every day. This retailer is also looking to significantly expand their omnichannel retail strategy.

Challenge
E-commerce customer expectations for next-day and same-day delivery have caused retailers to transform their omnichannel distribution strategy. With same-day delivery, retailers hope to drive sales, delight customers and build brand loyalty.

In addition to optimizing inventory repositioning, retailers need to launch ship-from-store to fulfill same-day delivery in large and small markets nationwide.

To launch a next-day and same-day BODFS model, retailers will need to find an e-commerce shipping solution that has the flexibility to handle variable size and volume at a predictable rate.

Solution
Retailers partner with Roadie to launch BODFS and same-day delivery in a number of markets nationwide. Partnering with a scalable delivery workforce saves retailers from spending millions on infrastructure and overhead costs to build their own fleet.

Custom integrations allow the retailer to connect existing online checkout and order fulfillment systems with Roadie’s delivery infrastructure. As a result, retailers can drive and streamline same-day delivery, while also giving customers the ability to instantly schedule deliveries at point of sale.
