What is a bulk run?
A bulk run is a run of same-day deliveries that are ready at the same time from the same pickup location.
How do I upload a bulk run?
Bulk runs can be uploaded via your web-store plug in, a standard bulk upload or manually. All bulk runs will have a default ready_at time set by the user. All jobs that are logged 30 minutes before the ready_at time will be grouped into the bulk run which will open and at the specified ready_at time.
By default all bulk runs have a prep time of 30 minutes in order for Sherpa's platform to optimise the run creation, open it to the crowd and get it assigned.
Pick Up Window
All bulk runs are advertised with a 60 minutes pick up window to the driver.
Bulk Run Example
- Prep time = 11:30pm-12:00pm
- Ready_at = 12.00pm
- Pickup window = 12:00pm-1:00pm
- Delivery window = 12:00pm-5:00pm
