A logistics application is a web, mobile, or desktop application that enables companies to coordinate their shipments. Logistics apps usually include features for users to view the status of their shipments in real time and track shipments through GPS history.
Logistics apps share features with many other commerce and business management apps like accounting apps and inventory management apps. Popular logistics app examples include Instacart, Uber Eats, and Postmates.
An AR app for a logistics company. The user receives a quote based on information imputed by the carrier on his log in. If accepted, the carrier receives a notification with all the information including the AR image. Carrier and user can then chat through the app.
A logistics app can grow by creating incentives for users to request deliveries from their peers, such as offering discounts for using the app, or by opening up new markets that the user may not have considered. The app needs to attract a large number of both drivers and passengers in order for it to be sustainable.
Logistics apps that connect drivers and riders or customers and service providers through a third-party platform face legal risks associated with the handling of personal information, the classification of workers as contractors or employees, and regulatory compliance.
