Case Study: How WooCommerce Delivery Slots Saves Time and Fuel for UK Fresh Meats

There’s a number of uses for WooCommerce Delivery Slots; one of the most popular is for delivering fresh food within set delivery areas on a specific delivery schedule. It is this exact reason that led Ross of UK Fresh Meats to purchase WooCommerce Delivery Slots.

Ross is the owner of UK Fresh Meats, an online butcher which delivers fresh meat to your door at a date and time that suits you. Their mission is simple; to provide people with the best quality of nutritional fresh meat, whether its families, fitness fanatics or even children.

Customers can easily create their order of fresh produce on the website. At checkout, they are then prompted to select a delivery date and time.

Ross has configured a number of delivery rules for the website. These include:

  • Tuesday to Saturday delivery days.
  • Next day delivery available until 11pm the previous day.
  • Time slots every 20 minutes from 12pm to 8pm.
  • Time slots are disabled when 2 bookings are made for any given day.

You can see that the settings Ross has used are very flexible. Now he knows when deliveries are likely to be made. He also knows he will never become overloaded with deliveries, as each time slot is disabled after 2 orders; this gives him the flexibility to grow his delivery team, on a day-by-day basis.

It’s safe to say that a well-organised delivery schedule is at the core of UK Fresh Meats. Ross even went as far as to say “WooCommerce Delivery Slots has saved me thousands in time and fuel. I can’t yet measure the exact savings, but it’s the spine to my business”.

Ross experimented with a number of options for offering delivery dates to his customers. He eventually discovered the Iconic offering after 6 months of looking and planning, and says that WooCommerce Delivery Slots “trumps them all”.

He has happily recommended the plugin to his friends and colleagues.
