Last-mile-delivery is becoming more and more popular, but what is it exactly?
This strategy basically consists of cutting the delivery chain in two.
More concretely, a "traditional" delivery company will cover most of the distance (by plane, truck, etc.) and will drop off the parcel at a hub at the entrance to the city or inside it. From there, other, less cumbersome vehicles will take over to distribute the goods in a more efficient and agile manner.
In addition to being a key to customer satisfaction, last mile delivery is both the most expensive and time-consuming part of the shipping process.
Therefore, implementing such strategies not only increases parcel volume, expedites deliveries, but also delights customers all while trying to cut costs.
Cargo bikes are one of the best ways to meet the needs of such a strategy!
But also help to reduce congestion, pollution and noise generated by traditional vehicles.
