Benefits

Improve customer experience

Customers expect a quick and hassle-free service. With precise what3words addresses, couriers know exactly where to deliver. It’s easier to predict delivery times, so customers receive a more accurate ETA and get their packages on time.

Increase efficiencies

Using what3words addresses for city deliveries can reduce delivery times in the last mile by up to 42%, meaning faster delivery fulfilment and savings on mileage.¹

With confirmed, highly accurate location information, more first-time deliveries are successful.

Make seamless international deliveries

what3words’ global addressing standard makes it easy for customers to enter any delivery location in the world. Available in 45+ languages and optimised for OCR scanning, what3words makes delivery across countries smooth and facilitates the flow of goods between developed and emerging economies.

Always accurate delivery points

Globally, 70% of addresses don’t lead to the front door of a property² and new builds take time to appear on maps. With what3words, customers can refer to a specific door, entrance or safe place to leave their package with great accuracy and little room for error.
