What is the Last Mile Problem for Retail Distributing Companies?
A parcel can travel around the world overnight without incident. Most of the problems that distribution companies encounter, as it relates to getting the right parcels to the right customers when they're due, is in literally the last mile of a shipment. Getting the parcel from the warehouse or distribution center up the road the last mile to the customer's residence is where errors occur, and retailers and retail distributors run into the most expenses.
Last mile problems are costly for all parties. If nothing else, the missed delivery will cause the customer to be very unsatisfied, to put it mildly, almost 100% of the time, which hurts the retailer, which hurts the retail distribution firm. It also costs the retail distributor because they have to deliver the parcel again and they may lose business due to angry retailers. Retailers often have to reimburse or refund their disgruntled customers. Nobody whens when shipments don't get where they belong on time.
Our Goal is to Eliminate Inefficiencies
It all boils down to inefficiencies within the supply chain. Utilizing Last Mile Logistics crowdsourcing technology; retailers, retail distribution companies, and retail customers can quickly connect with non-professional couriers who utilize their own modes of transportation to get parcels to customers when it counts. These sorts of on-demand delivery options also ensure that the customer will be home at the time of delivery. This gets the product to the customer rapidly and almost completely eliminates any need for second and or third delivery attempts.
