Final (Last) Mile Delivery Service
Ensuring That Orders Reach Your Customers Efficiently
Thanks to the growth of e-commerce and multi-channel selling, mastering the logistics of delivering items to your customers is more important than ever. Every stage of the process, from packaging and leaving the warehouse to reaching your customer is vital, but the final (last mile) delivery element is perhaps more crucial than most. After all, this is the step that completes the order fulfillment process.
In a fierce business arena where even the slightest of margins can make all the difference, getting this aspect of the operation under control is pivotal. Mako Freight makes it easier than ever
Final or last mile delivery is a term that relates to the final leg of the shipping process, typically in a 150-mile range. Sometimes it’s also referred to LTL or “less than a truckload”. While the title suggests it is the last mile, it actually covers the process from leaving the distribution center or facility until it reaches the end user. In many cases, this could last for anything up to 100 miles, although it is almost always exclusive to road networks rather than taking in air or sea travel. (Utilizing a large box truck network, this is where Mako Freight shines.)
While it is easy to overlook this part of the delivery process, it should be noted that last mile logistics count for nearly 30% of the overall costs relating to deliveries. Moreover, the quality and efficiency of this element will have a telling impact on the number of deliveries that can be made along with the overall happiness of the clients, especially if they are tracking the delivery of their goods.
The fact that many modern consumers are all about instant results, many are happy to pay a premium for better final (last) mile logistics, particularly for same day or instant delivery. This is something that businesses can use as a major selling point too. Final mile delivery is now a major factor for global giants, but small-to-midsize businesses should embrace it too.
In a situation where your business is in constant competition with its competitors, there is no other choice but to go the extra mile in terms of delivery. Perfecting the final mile logistics is naturally an extremely telling factor, and every company should look to take charge of the situation right away. Not least because the importance of last mile logistics is only set to grow over the coming years. Staying ahead of the game is essential.
The need to get delivery aspects right in a fast time puts a lot of pressure on companies. Large products need to arrive at the consumer’s door as an honest representation of what was sold while navigating traffic in fast times can be difficult. Of course, when products are being delivered to customers across various states or countries, a plethora of logistical problems will surface. Only a professional approach to last mile logistics will do.
Overcoming driver shortages, vehicle issues, and other possible action is vital too, which is why last mile delivery requires a lot of attention. Sadly, the days of relying on slow national services is a thing of the past, especially when your business aims to steal some of the spotlight from the global giants.
