Last Mile Delivery | The Future of Business

Last Mile Delivery The Need Was Born

During the 1999 holiday season: stores faced shortages of popular goods, overstock of undesirable merchandise, and an inability to get the right items to the right customers on time.

This shows the importance of capacity planning to a company’s branding. A brand, which can be defined as a promise delivered, can easily be destroyed by not delivering products on time or not having the merchandise that your customers want when they want them.  Last mile delivery helps products get delivered where they need to be on time and with lower cost than traditional delivery.

Last Mile Delivery And The Future

Every major company faces a growing need to evolve operating strategies to harvest the enormous value potential sown by the Internet. Only those that don’t want to remain in business will ignore the strategic implications of last mile logistics operations. In the future e-tailers may push more toward offering same-day home delivery, in order to push themselves above their competition and gain more market share.
