  • Reviewing each regional hub's daily plan to ensure that it is optimised and then handing it over to the delivery coordinators to implement and manage.
  • We will constantly be looking to refine and improve our delivery performance through analysis of delivery journeys and how they can be turned into more precise delivery slots for customers to choose from.
