Dispatched: Packfleet’s Weekly Update — 17th December 2021

Josh Garnham

Our latest weekly update on your doorstep! Insert "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means." joke here 👀

Keen readers might have noticed there’s been a few weekly updates missing. We’ve been super busy scaling the operational side of things these past couple of weeks as things really pick up for the holiday season 🚀

That’s not to say we haven’t been working on cool stuff though — especially with our work on our own routing & driver app, which will drastically improve the experience for drivers, recipients and merchants!

Our new app for drivers taking shape


  • 🖌 Battled strange issues with fonts, and logos to make our labels keep looking beautiful
  • ✨ Built out a brand new interface for our route generation behind the scenes, allowing us to simulate different routes ahead of time and reducing the morning workload
  • 📱 Jumped straight into the state-of-the-art SwiftUI framework provided by Apple to build out a new app for drivers (a sneak preview above!) that’s now showing live routes ready for testing
  • 🎄 Made tweaks to our internal tools to help us better scale up our processes for the busy festive weeks!
