Salasa announces partnership with what3words

Salasa offers reliable, cost-effective, and scalable logistic and fulfillment solutions for e-commerce stores. It helps facilitate orders, streamline inventory management processes and provides quick access to products with high accuracy through smart software designed according to customers needs. Because of Salasa’s ambitious vision and leadership in the logistics sector, the company is now using what3words to improve delivery fulfilment.

What is what3words?

What3words is an innovative addressing solution that provides a simple way to communicate precise locations. It has divided the world into a grid of 3 metre squares and given each square a unique combination of three random words: a what3words address. For example, ///filled.count.soap is the entrance to what3words London HQ’s. It’s available worldwide and in more than 50 languages including Arabic.

It’s a simple way for customers to tell Salasa precisely where they want their goods delivered, whether it’s a front door or exact delivery entrance. Customers can discover what3words addresses on the free what3words app, available for iOS and Android or the online map and add them to their delivery address information. Couriers can then find the exact delivery location quickly and easily.

Millions of what3words addresses are in use around the world, with thousands of businesses using them to save money, be more efficient and provide a better customer experience. what3words can be integrated into apps, platforms and websites with just a few lines of code.  Its partners include  Aramex, Mercedes-Benz and emergency services across the world.

What are the benefits of using what3words for Salasa customers?

Street addresses can be vague. In fact, they can sometimes lead to incorrect locations and do not precisely indicate specific entrances of buildings. what3words allows people to communicate an exact delivery destination, allowing couriers to make their deliveries faster and more efficiently. 

One notable advantage is the improved customer experience. A what3words address will now enable customers to provide an accurate delivery point as they rest assured that they will receive their order exactly where requested. With those 3 words, estimated delivery times become far more accurate and consistent, and WISMO (Where Is My Order?) inquiries or failed deliveries are minimized.

Further, it’s environmentally sustainable and advantageous. what3words has been proven to help reduce distances traveled by couriers, not to mention reducing fuel consumption by up to 15%. Now, drivers can better optimize their routes, knowing exactly where they will be making deliveries, helping Salasa cut down on inefficiencies that create unnecessary emissions, especially during the last mile phase. 

This partnership will improve the end customer experience and provide efficient technological logistic solutions that aim to allow e-commerce merchants to store and package their products in abidance with the highest standards and deliver it to the end customer through Salasa’s shipping solutions.
