Streamlining last-mile delivery with nShift

Streamlining last-mile delivery with nShift


Last-mile delivery is the delivery of goods from a transportation hub to the final delivery destination or customer. It is the last stage of the supply chain, and it is crucial because it is the point of contact between the supplier and the customer. If not executed effectively, it can damage customer relationships and erode brand value. With the rise of e-commerce, last-mile delivery has become an essential part of the logistics industry. Companies are striving to provide efficient and seamless delivery experiences to customers.

nShift, the global leader in parcel delivery management and shipment software, offers a suite of features and capabilities that make it stand out in enabling efficient and seamless last-mile deliveries. In this blog, we will explore the importance of last-mile delivery and how nShift is optimising this crucial aspect of the supply chain.

The importance of last-mile delivery

Last-mile delivery is the most expensive and complex part of the delivery process. It can account for up to 53% of the total delivery cost. The complexity of last-mile delivery is attributed to factors such as multiple delivery locations, unpredictable traffic, and unavailability of the recipient. Customers want their deliveries to be timely, convenient, and hassle-free. Therefore, companies that can provide accurate and efficient last-mile delivery can gain a competitive advantage.

Efficient last-mile delivery can improve customer satisfaction, increase customer loyalty, and lead to repeat business. In contrast, poor last-mile delivery can damage customer relationships, lead to negative reviews, and impact brand reputation. Given the importance of last-mile delivery, it is crucial for companies to optimise this aspect of the supply chain.
