You need to work with delivery companies, freight providers, and to coordinate the delivery of shipments efficiently to your customers. If your business relies on shipments to get work done, you’ll need to have a delivery order for the best experience with the logistics part of your business.
Our delivery order template is customizable, fully form fillable, and meant to be used online, digital, mobile, and with e-signatures and tracking. It’s an effective tool for the management of your deliveries, and we hope it helps you accelerate your business.
You’ll need to do all of the proper research and homework first, but this template will give you a head-start and a good framework. You should always consult a lawyer though before finalizing any contracts.
Using a great delivery order is an essential component of running an online business or one that requires logistics to deliver goods to your customers. Track your shipments and deliveries efficiently and seamlessly with electronic documentation for each item as it’s sent on its way. A delivery order document can be a part of a legally binding document, electronic, and leveraging e-signatures, and is perfect for Kdan’s PDF Reader, Dottedsign, and D365 cloud document management services.
Using PDF documents to electronically keep track of orders such as this one, your company will gain valuable efficiency and accuracy. You can use auditing to track where and when the order is handed off, and get notifications right on your mobile device. Just require a signature, and the image will be sent right to you, and securely stored in the cloud for you to see any time.
With PDF Reader, you can attach photos, notes, signatures, or “where-to-sign” stickies for all parties involved, to create a rich paperless trail of information attached to your delivery orders. Use the wide variety of editing tools built in to develop new procedures, capturing more information about your packages, and allowing you to further optimize your business practices. By making your delivery orders paperless, you can greatly reduce the risk of lost orders, and respond quickly and accurately to clients and customers in the case of disputes. Electronic delivery orders are just as valid as paper ones, if they are signed and considered legal documents, so rest assured and know that your deliveries are handled with care.
A delivery order contains a set of fields for the various parties to fill in along the process. You can download it and use any software to fill in the blanks, but for additional functionality, use PDF Reader. PDF reader allows you to sign and fill documents in person on a PC, Mac, iPhone, Android phone and tablet, or iPad, and share the same file across many devices with Kdan cloud.
Keep a rich history and changelog of each delivery order, with data of who made what edits when, and protection from deletion. You can even add a password and encrypt your orders to keep sensitive data away from prying eyes. Kdan’s PDF reader even supports a higher level of security, OTP, or a one-time password. If you need this highest level, users must enter a valid phone number and receive an SMS code before being able to open the document. Your digital audit trail will record this phone number, and use it to identify individuals who edited the document.
We’ve made it easier for you to add more details to your delivery orders. Add maps, hyperlinks, and clickable images, notes, and more, and see why PDF Reader is one of the leading PDF apps on the iOS and Android App stores. It’s simple and easy to understand, and yet scalable and capable of handling even the densest of data requirements. Using a digital delivery order can create more efficiency and accuracy in your deliveries, leading to higher customer satisfaction, and higher demand for your business.
We’ve included several of the highly important elements as part of a delivery order. When you send a package, you need to designate the shipper or consignor for each delivery. You can include additional details about the shipper, such as a logo, stamp, address, phone number, the person of contact, and email. You’ll also see that at the very top of the order, we’ve included the person or company that the order will be delivered to, also known as the consignee. With the consignee address, you can also include images, links to a map or CMS system, or the additional instructions for how to deliver or who the package is marked for in the attn line.
Almost every carrier includes a tracking number to allow you to find the shipment through their tracking system. Right at the top of the delivery order, you can find this tracking number, as a large field so you can make it bold and prominent. You can even include this as a digital stamp, enabling unique colors and details for verification. Next, you’ll notice the type of transport used, like a checkbox, so that you can customize and easily fill out the template for several orders.
Finally, on the delivery order template, you will find the origin and destination, where you may include addresses or even airport, seaport or harbor codes. Under this, the final critical element is the order details. For customs clearance, fees, and air travel, the category, size and weight, and exceptions or special considerations should be included. We’ve added a couple of checkboxes to make it easy to select the most common types of shipment details. Try using this delivery order template in digital format, and see how easy it is to keep your deliveries efficient, organized, and paperless.
