30% Logistics Cost Savings by Flower Chimp

Being a florist is hard work and the competitive market in Singapore does not make it any easier. How then can you maximise your revenue and save on cost without compromising on the quality of your flowers? Engaging affordable delivery services for your flowers is something you can consider! Flower Chimp started using Pickupp's delivery services at the beginning of 2019. Before Pickupp, the cost they incurred from their delivery services were high. Although it was daunting at the start, Flower Chimp’s decision to switch from their existing courier service to Pickupp was a worthwhile investment that led to logistics cost savings of 30%. Change is never easy but a commitment to innovate and source for new ways to improve your business can lead to greater productivity. Flower Chimp is a one-stop online platform that delivers fresh bouquets of flowers from a variety of florists in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and Hong Kong. The company provides same day delivery services for their customers, as long as you order by 1pm on the very day.

How did Pickupp supported Flower Chimp's business and helped them to save cost?
