Exceptional customer experience demands superior last-mile tracking
With such a large operation comes layers of complexity and a ton of data to manage and oversee. One of the biggest challenges was not being able to see where their orders were at any given time. This caused a few problems:
- It made it difficult to ensure on-time deliveries as promised
- It was a headache for internal teams to track down deliveries when dealing with upset customers
- It slowed things down significantly because customer care teams had to jump from one platform to another to find the right information
It was hard to see how well deliveries were going and taking proactive action to contact customers who may have shipping delays was impossible. SpeedyTire couldn't do much to help because they didn't have control over the orders after they left the warehouse and they also didn't know when deliveries were stalled or delayed.
They needed a single source of truth that their internal teams could rely on to provide a consistent online delivery experience based on accurate carrier and shipping data. And that's where AfterShip Tracking stepped in.

Without visibility into delivery operations, it's nearly impossible to identify problems efficiently. You can't improve on what you can't measure.
AfterShip Tracking helped SpeedyTire by providing support for hundreds of carriers, and centralized tracking—and it was all set up instantly. This allowed SpeedyTire to focus on delivering a great customer experience instead of wasting time digging through carrier data.
Their teams quickly integrated with AfterShip Tracking API to get tracking data from all of the different carriers and then send proactive delivery status communication to customers. AfterShip Tracking’s hassle-free and rapid deployment helped SpeedyTire power better post-purchase experiences and profit-driven strategies.
