The boom in e-commerce is currently confronting Supply Chain players with a growing demand for fast, accurate, and adaptable deliveries. While this evolution offers significant economic prospects, it also presents challenges for carriers and distributors, both in terms of optimizing transportation costs and organizational management.

Without visibility into the ecological and economic cost of delivery slots, an e-commerce site’s customer typically chooses the most convenient delivery window, leading to suboptimal delivery routes for carriers, including repeated visits to certain areas within the same day.

To address this issue, Kardinal’s teams have developed a dynamic delivery slot optimization solution that reverses the situation by optimizing from the moment of scheduling, recommending the most economical and ecological slots based on already planned deliveries.

Hub One aims to make this solution available to its clients within its Hub One DMS solution.

The integration of this API enables new innovative functionalities:

  • Strategic display of time slots: Users can choose to display or hide certain delivery slots based on their impact on their business objectives.
  • Calculation of ecological impact: The environmental impact of delivery slots can be displayed to the end customer to encourage more sustainable choices.
  • Dynamic pricing: The prices of time slots can vary based on the actual operational cost of delivery. If a delivery is already scheduled on the same day in the vicinity, the price is adjusted downward if the chosen time slot is the same.


We are thrilled to collaborate closely with Hub One on innovative features for their Hub One | DMS solution. Together, we will bring to market a comprehensive offering that will truly change the game in terms of the last-mile impact.

The need for last-mile optimization is crucial, and since establishing the partnership, synergies with Kardinal have been multiplying," says Benoît Duchêne, Director of Hub One's Traceability Division. "Today, we are considering optimized delivery slot scheduling because it brings immediate value to the entire ecosystem. However, we also have other topics in the pipeline that we will unveil in the coming months.
