Also called last mile, this is the last leg of a shipment’s journey. It usually takes place from a warehouse or distribution center to the customer’s door. The end receiver can be an individual consumer, a retail business, or another type of business.
The idea of the “last mile” is also important in other fields like urban planning, telecommunications, and public transportation. In logistics, this custom service often represents the bulk of the cost of the total delivery. So, efficiency and supply chain planning are important in this type of customer service.
This is the company or person who actually delivers the product in the segment of final mile shipping. It can be the regular postal service, a courier, or any number of delivery specialists like the ones we partner with at AmerTrans Logistics.
