What is Last Mile Delivery?

Last mile delivery is a term used in freight transportation, fleet, and supply chain management referring to the last stage of delivery of a product or package from its point of origin to its final destination. Essentially, it really means just “the last mile(s)” of the product journey. This last step in the transportation process often includes the careful coordination and movement of goods and fleets, with challenges in improving efficiency and lowering costs that arrive from ensuring timely and safe delivery.
