How Do You Build Your Final Mile?

FreightWaves

Customers heightened demands such as white glove delivery and fast shipping times have changed expectations for shippers dramatically. Many companies are struggling to figure out how to compete with large, successful companies like Amazon, who have raised the bar for shipping excellence. In addition, shippers and third-party logistics (3PL) providers must deal with a highly fragmented carrier market, often working with multiple carriers in any given market to meet special demands. In addition, maintaining communication across these relationships is a struggle, and gaining visibility across the shipping process only adds to the complexity of this landscape.
