Optimizing last mile delivery operations for businesses all over the world

As a retailer or marketplace sending hundreds or thousands of deliveries every day, your entire operation needs to be as cost effective, transparent and efficient as your largest competitors. “Delivering” on your customers’ high expectations is critical to growing and scaling your business. This is especially true in a world where companies are continually finding new ways to deliver better and faster.

 

An indispensable, and logistically complex, aspect of the whole process is the “last mile” of the delivery, the final stretch in getting goods from a transportation hub to a customer’s front door. Consistent delivery in the last mile can make or break a customer’s experience. Businesses and customers alike are seeing the value of enhancing their last mile delivery services–from 2014 to 2018, investments in last mile solutions increased ten fold.

 

Let’s imagine that you own a large company that delivers furniture and home decor products to customers all over the US. With thousands of orders and SKUs, hundreds of delivery drivers, and dozens of warehouses sprinkled across the country, it may seem exhaustingly complicated to ensure everything runs like a well-oiled machine. However, if your team is equipped with the right tools, it doesn’t need to be.
