Last Mile Service and Delivery

Solve the last mile problem by enabling location services from HERE Technologies

Introduction

Streamlining delivery

It’s a fact: 40-50% of the total cost of delivery occurs at the last mile.

A significant challenge is transporting goods from distribution hubs to customers on time and at the lowest cost. Last mile delivery not only makes up a huge chunk of the total delivery cost, but also influences customer satisfaction.  

The growing demand for free shipping also means customers are less willing to pay for delivery, forcing retailers and logistics partners to cover the cost. Drivers also waste valuable time trying to find precise destinations. 

For these reasons, retailers and logistics providers are hungry for new technologies and process improvements to evolve last mile delivery. The goal is to deliver on time to enhance customer satisfaction, while saving effort, money and resources.

How our clients achieved success

How GotFlowers is disrupting the florist industry with HERE

Mom and pop florists were beholden to legacy third-party services for in-store infrastructure and marketing at large. Also, small shops were traditionally unable offer location-based delivery charges or create optimal distribution routing. Now, HERE technology is powering GotFlowers Gift Delivery System and enabling flower retailers to better compete in the on-demand economy.
