Emerging innovations continue to transform logistics and 2019 was no exception. As we usher in a new decade, let’s look back at the delivery trends that made this past year one for the books.
Aging in Place
Pharmacies are increasingly leveraging final mile logistics providers to deliver medicine to patients at home, whose long-term care options now extend beyond nursing homes and assisted living facilities. The opportunity for same- and next-day delivery compared to traditional carriers appeals to healthcare providers adapting to consumer demands for more flexibility. Expected to impact both primary and acute care services, the aging in place trend shows no signs of slowing going into 2020.
Optimizing Network Design
Final mile shippers want to better match driver capacity with demand. Utilizing shared networks and dynamic operations is precisely how USPack enables clients to avoid burning time and money on unproductive miles. Our shared network approach means that clients only pay for what they use, rather than a full 9-hour window.
White Glove, Assembly and Delivery
Why stop at the final mile when you can perfect the experience down to the last 15 yards? The demand for White Glove delivery and assembly is growing in the big and bulky sector. USPack is investing in offering this for an enhanced customer experience.
Customization as a Competitive Advantage
One size doesn’t fit all. Customers want options and flexibility in their delivery experience. By unbundling final mile delivery from traditional LTL carriers, shippers can gain access to a wide range of customized delivery services. Final mile partners like USPack allow shippers adaptability in their supply chain, with shorter delivery windows and greater visibility.
