The final mile, and why it's important in logistics

What is the final mile, and why is it so important in logistics? [Video]

November 5, 2019

Understanding the final mile and its importance in the world of logistics can help your business make better decisions about shipping and supply chain management.

The final mile, also called the last mile, refers to the travel from a warehouse or distribution hub to the terminal destination, like a customer's home or business, or your own facilities. While it's often a relatively short trip, the efficiency of this delivery process and the care taken during it can have a major impact on customer perception and your own operations.
