What is Final (Last) Mile Delivery?
Last, or final mile, delivery describes getting a product from a retailer’s hub to its final destination. For those who are unaware of shipping challenges, the last leg of a product’s journey tends to be the most expensive and complex for retailers.
Additionally, this is true even if the trucking company does a route survey in advance. And, in an area like New York City, it’s doubly difficult. The high population, dense area and narrow streets create a never-ending series of complexities for drivers. For retail stores, street congestion and small roads can lead to logistics problems that make shipping nearly impossible. Therefore, it’s never been so important to find the right trucking company for you.
Why is Final Mile Logistics so Important?
Nowadays, the shipment and delivery is almost as important as the product itself. With the explosion of eCommerce and online ordering, shipping logistics must adapt and grow, as well. Therefore, retailers rely on the efficiency of trucking companies to deliver goods to their customers quickly, safely and efficiently. Keeping cargo safe and secure is simply one element of a multi-layered and complex overall shipping process.
Obviously, local delivery services are becoming more competitive in order to meet the needs of consumers. Efficient final mile delivery service can grow your business at unprecedented rates. When your company can deliver goods quicker and more efficiently than your competitors, your business will reap those benefits.
