DSV offers scheduled services to required locations in accordance with customer requirements (anything from one service per day to multiple scheduled services per day at predefined times daily).
A typical scheduled service allows for deliveries and collections to be done (in a single stop intervention) – even if there are no deliveries for that service point on that particular day when DSV Mounties will service the location / branch / store. This is to ensure that even if there is work to be collected, this can still be done without the hassle of phoning in just to arrange a collection.
This model also enables unique pricing methodology to be employed that reduces the effective unit cost as additional volume is introduced into the network.
The benefit is that customers can choose a responsive supply chain without having to stage shipments (build consolidations).
