How to be first on the last mile.

April 02, 2020
Are you making the most of the last mile—that all-important final touchpoint in the logistics network? Last-mile delivery is defined as the movement of goods from a transportation hub to the final delivery destination, typically a personal residence or a store. The focus of last-mile logistics lies on delivering items to the end-user as fast as possible. However, historically last-mile delivery is managed inefficiently and has largely been outsourced, leading at times to customer dissatisfaction.
Consumers are frustrated with a lack of choice, visibility and the opportunity to request value-added services on the fly—so-called white-glove services. Hence, customers’ expectations around delivery are growing fast—they expect speed, real-time visibility and convenience—in return, they are willing to pay for a better experience. Get it right, and your business will be rewarded with customer trust and loyalty.
In this webinar, we will examine the challenges companies are facing within the last mile and the value SAP together with Westernacher can provide. An efficient business process design paired with an innovative IT platform and the right solution add-ons will elevate your supply chain to the next level. We will show you how to achieve excellence in the last mile and how to boost your customer’s experience through white-glove services.
