Home deliveries, or more broadly speaking last-mile deliveries have been around for a long time. However, first with Internet-only retailers, then with the growth of Amazon and Alibaba, and now with COVID-19, the importance of mastering last-mile deliveries has become imperative. While home delivery used to be a luxury add-on offering, it is now the only way for many retailers to generate revenues.
Last-mile delivery challenges differ by product type: grocery retailers need to deliver within a few hours or at least on the same day of order placement, and they usually have to combine packaged goods, fresh produce, and frozen goods in one order. Compare this with white goods or furniture retailers who need to be able to provide additional services such as assemblies or installations. Fashion retailers, finally, face challenges of managing return rates as high as 80%. Therefore, different solutions are needed.
