2018 State of the Last Mile Report
The last mile has become the melting pot of expectations for consumer, retailer and logistics provider alike. A highly pressurised vat of expectation and emotion which often explodes; with today’s connected consumers not afraid to broadcast their woes when they feel the fulfilment of their order has been poor.
Delivery can ‘make or break’ a brand’s reputation.
