  • Driver Transparency for Last Mile Deliveries (Development)

    The driver transparency project ensures that we have a way to let the driver-partners know how efficiently they make the deliveries. There were three parts to it.

    The first one was the score computation piece, which involved consuming a driver's delivery data in real-time and generating a weighted score relative to the peers.

    The second piece of the project was to interpret the score in a human-readable language. For that, I created a React Native app, which focused on driver standings and motivated our driver-partners to work on aspects of the delivery, which will boost their scores.

    The third piece of the project was implementing the reward program for top performers and a penalty system for the low performers. I build automated workflows around offboarding the drivers who consistently failed to meet the bar.

    The transparency project improved driver efficiency by 60%.
