What is the Last Mile Delivery?
Last mile delivery and final mile delivery are interchangeable terms describing the last piece of the supply chain. It often is the shipment of goods from a warehouse, fulfillment center, or store to the item’s final delivery destination. Large corporations, small businesses, and everything in between all use some form of final mile services to get their product in their customer’s hands faster or easier.

Final Mile Carrier
The companies that complete final mile delivery are final mile carriers. The largest, traditional final mile carriers are freight companies or legacy companies like FedEX, UPS, and USPS. As effective as each of these companies are, they still have limitations because of inefficient routes, inability to deliver large items, and overhead costs of final mile services.
Final Mile Tracking
Final Mile Tracking is important because consumers are expecting increased clarity and faster delivery options with each new order. Last mile logistics is a growing industry valued at over $1 Billion each year. Demand is still increasing due to the unstoppable trend of e-commerce. Customers want to buy items right away and see each stage of delivery until it is in their hands.
In response to the emerging need to show delivery tracking, companies like Amazon, UPS, and FedEx offer precise tracking. Precise tracking is done with more data checkpoints that show customers when their order has been registered, filled, shipped from the warehouse, and out for delivery
