First Mile Delivery Definition

First-mile delivery is the transportation of shipment across the supply chain. However, this could be defined in various ways based on the industry's type, scale, and size. For example, manufacturers define first-mile delivery as transporting items from a regional warehouse and moving them to a distribution center. But for a retailer, first-hand delivery involves the movement of goods from regional distribution centers to local stores.

First-mile delivery is the first and most crucial step of order fulfillment and customer satisfaction. It calls for meticulous supply chain planning, including careful evaluation of production lead times and understanding of the warehouse receiving and storage process. Optimal location also affects first-mile delivery. For instance, if you choose to partner with a local supplier, your delivery time will differ from someone who contracted an overseas supplier.

There is so much that goes into planning for efficient first-mile delivery. This involves researching and finding the perfect carrier, negotiating and presenting your needs and expectations to them. Be sure to ask the right questions. For instance, if you are shipping abroad, find out about the laws, practices, and customs that need to be navigated. Ensure that your career understands the ins and outs of safe, legal and affordable shipping.
