LAST MILE DELIVERY IS CHANGING THE WAY BUSINESSES WORK
In recent years, the demand for this service has increased substantially due to the nature of it and the way it has made the life of customers easier. The main aim of last mile delivery is to deliver the goods to the final purchaser as soon as possible, making it a quick and hassle free transaction for everyone involved. With every passing year, we are witnessing customers with higher expectations in terms of how quick, easy, smart and hassle free the last mile delivery can be and that is what Yalla Pickup is offering to its client.
One of the major changes in the business world has been the entry of ecommerce sites; online purchasing which enables the customer to make a purchase online and have the goods delivered at their doorstep. The last mile delivery is most effective for these types of transactions as customers are much more satisfied when catered to immediately. With online purchasing and last mile delivery the world has seen the lives of every busy person made easy.
The global trend on e-commerce is a continued strong growth from 2304 bn USD 2017 to estimated 4878 bn USD by 2021. With Alibaba gaining majority share in Cainiao 3P logistics platform and Amazons last mile acquisitions, we're now witnessing the next decade of disruption in last mile delivery.
How about this awesome statement: Alibaba pledge to invest $15bn over the next 5 yrs to realize its vision of "fulfilling orders throughout china/the world within 24 hrs / 72 hrs."
According to a report published by BMI Research, the Middle East is one the fastest growing ecommerce markets in the world. The same report also projects that the sales volume of this region will expand to $22.3bn in 2020 from $15bn in 2015. That's 50% growth over a period of 5 years.
Another change brought into businesses by this service is the need for retailers to have a larger stock of their goods than they did before. Businesses should be able to cater to the orders they receive from the customers and should be able to make the delivery as fast as they can. In order to make sure there is a smooth flow of supply, businesses should always have stocks ready to be dispatched.
The most important benefit of last mile delivery is cost effectiveness. Did you know that 20% of goods being transported tend to lose their value in transit? Poor and slow supply chain management techniques can lead to much more than just dissatisfied customers; it can result in loss.
Last mile delivery not only ensures quick and safe delivery of stock but also helps make sure you have happy satisfied customers, because at the end of the day, customer is king!
