FINAL MILE DELIVERY
From the store, warehouse, or fulfillment center to a product’s final destination, learn more about ‘final mile delivery’ and how Bungii has helped small businesses tackle this growing need.
WHAT IS "FINAL MILE" DELIVERY?
The term “final mile delivery” refers to the delivery of any items from a store, warehouse, or fulfillment center to its final destination.
While the term “last mile” is used more frequently, “final mile” is another term for the delivery of items from a store, warehouse, or fulfillment center to its final destination. Final mile delivery is the last leg of the supply chain and serves a specific purpose in each industry: to get items to the final destination from the long journey before.
"THE FINAL MILE"
|Final Mile for Retailer Usage||Final Mile for Commercial Usage|
|Deliver their customer’s purchases, usually to a home or business||Deliver materials (eg carpet, paint, plywood, tires, tools) or equipment to worksites or warehouses|
|Offer multiple delivery options (buy online & deliver from store, threshold, white glove delivery)||Transport inventory from one store or distribution center to another within the same city|
|Initiate “home to store” customer returns||Haul large pallets or crates that contain various products, which are usually shipped shrink-wrapped|
WHY FINAL MILE DELIVERY IS IMPORTANT
Every industry depends on the final mile to operate and get their products to consumers. Without a solid final mile strategy, any company faces inefficiencies and a loss of business because of a few key reasons:
- Final mile delivery is expensive. It is responsible for 53% of all shipping costs. Without the right fleet or system, businesses end up losing money by delivering more air than product.
- Expectations for delivery convenience have changed drastically in the last 10 years. Consumers want their new purchases in their hands within 48 hours, not two weeks.
- Both retail and commercial leaders continue to push what is possible when it comes to speed and convenience. Remaining competitive means following suit and offering fast and reliable delivery.
Final mile delivery accounts for up to 53% of all shipping costs.
