What is the Final Mile?
The final mile refers to the last segment of the shipping process and freight delivery to the final destination. It involves the extra services and equipment such as smaller tracks required shipping across roads with limited access, door to door, and inside delivery. It might encompass unpacking as well as installing the product.
The Final Mile Delivery Process
The orders are digitally fed into a centralized system-Both the sender and the end recipient observes and keeps track of the freight shipment status through a provided tracking number. They can also communicate with the hauling team, who will update them on the shipping process. The freight is received at the transportation hub and awaits delivery to its final destination-This is the beginning of the last mile delivery process. Numerous US freight companies provide final mile delivery solutions.
The orders are designated to freight companies or delivery personnel, depending on the client address and shipping routes. They are then scanned and loaded onto the shipping vehicles, ready for delivery. Both the sender and recipient are updated on the cargo status, which reduces cases of freight loss. The order is finally delivered to the end recipient, and proof of safe delivery is acquired- the delivery team is required to update the tracking information to confirm that the cargo has been successfully shipped and delivered.
