    What is last mile delivery

    As the ecommerce industry continues to expand, the last leg of delivery, also known as last mile delivery, has become more and more challenging. 

    Last mile delivery is the movement of goods from the retailer’s transportation hub to the final destination - consumer homes or retailers.

    Problems of last mile delivery

    Other than consumers having no time to pick up their parcels, deliveries are also usually made during day time where consumers are not at home. This pose as a significant issue to delivery companies like DHL and FedEx as the number of unattended delivery rises. Unattended parcels can lead to theft cases and other unforeseen circumstances. Other challenges include minimizing cost, ensuring transparency, increasing efficiency and making delivery frictionless.

    Last mile delivery has been receiving lots of attention from media and investors as the market is slowly dominated by e-commerces. Companies are constantly trying different methods to minimize the cost and inefficiency of last mile delivery. There are a lot of new innovations like drone delivery, bike couriers, autonomous ground vehicles which are all in the process of becoming a transportation method. Yet they are all highly experimental and there’s just no telling the types of roadblocks they would encounter when it comes to rules and regulations.
