The Rise of On-Demand Transportation Services
From dial-a-ride shuttle services to taxis, and now app-based pick-up and drop-off options, modern transportation makes our lives easier and has a significant impact on people's quality of life. Throughout this blog, we’ll explore how on-demand transport is working, and how SBS Expedited is continuously optimizing with the innovations of on-demand transit services.
What is On-Demand transportation?
On-demand transport services in Canada focus on optimizing the groups of passengers to book their journey at a convenient time (during service operating hours) and to be picked up from an agreed location. Thanks to the adoption of new technology, passengers use an app to book, pay and track their rides while drivers use the app to validate rider fares and other options within a matter of minutes. As more and more cities are embracing new technologies and innovative solutions, we’ve compiled a few lists of compelling statistics that shed light on the impact of the on-demand economy and where we may be headed in the future:
• On-demand transportation is Revolutionising Customer Behaviour - The internet influences and shapes the way humans act today. In other words, it offers convenience. The fast-moving technology companies competing in this arena have generated a sense of entitlement to fast, simple, and efficient experiences. In the world of logistics and on-demand delivery, today 60% of consumers would like to pay $10 to get the furniture delivered on the same day it was ordered. With the technological advancements of recent years, soon enough, waiting more than a day for furniture delivery will sound crazy.
• The on-demand economy is growing at an instant rate - According to Harvard Business Reports, the on-demand economy attracts 22.4 million consumers annually, offering immediate access to goods or services to consumers. That’s huge!
• Millennial in Supply Chain Management - Consumer demand for richer experiences and greater convenience constitutes 49% of Millennials. The prevalence of millennial consumers suggests that the on-demand economy is embedded within the scale and context of entering the workforce and accumulating wealth.
• Global On-Demand Transportation Services Investments - Growth within the on-demand delivery and transportation industry has been an exponential increase in funds invested. Over the past 12 months, the investment that is made is triple of investments made in the previous 4 years combined.
• Digital disruption has played an important role for all sectors, especially in the transportation sector where they had to move from offline to online tracking software where their customers can check the status of their product with a fingertip using tracking software solutions - Businesses have begun to understand that they need to adapt to buyer preferences, and are now leaning towards same-day delivery. Over 50% of online businesses are now planning on implementing same-day delivery in the next 3-5 years.
