Anyone who knows Mango Logistics Group knows that we specialise in true Last Mile delivery. Last mile deliveries have become increasingly prominent in the logistics world, but what is it, and why is it so important?
Last mile delivery is the last step of the delivery process, it’s the movement of goods from a transportation hub to the final delivery destination. In London alone, last mile deliveries have been increasing dramatically, especially during the pandemic, and the trend is still on the rise.
Growth in e-commerce and technology is radicalising how companies view last mile logistics. As the final step of the delivery process, the term can cause confusion for some as it ranges from a few blocks to several miles. To most companies, the concept of the last mile is up to 100 miles from the final delivery location, but with Mango Logistics this is not the case. We have several hubs less than one mile from Central London, guaranteeing a quicker, eco-friendly, delivery turnaround as we can use e-cargo bikes and electric vans, because we’re at such a short distance. At Mango Logistics we’re increasing our electric vehicle fleet and are aiming for the majority of our fleet to be emission free by the end of 2022.
More often than not, last mile deliveries contains parcels or small packages for the final user and can be carried by small vans and e-cargo bikes. According to studies by McKinsey & Company, parcel delivery worldwide is valued at around $83 billion (£61 billion) a year.
An increasing number of companies are recognising that partnering up with experts like Mango Logistics for on demand and true last mile deliveries is the way to go. I am proud to say that all companies that partner with us for true last mile deliveries and warehousing have been experiencing a powerful growth and highly potentiated their supply chain, even during the global pandemic.
Established e-commerce giants might have popularised last mile logistics, but it’s the players like Mango Logistics that are perfecting the game and allowing our clients to conquer a fair share of the market.
