LP - Epaper - 7 Must-Haves for Your Company’s Last-Mile Delivery Carrier

Challenges with Traditional Carriers

It’s clear that online shoppers demand fast deliveries for free or low costs. However, if you’re using a traditional legacy carrier like UPS or FedEx, same- and next-day delivery rates can be 2-3 times the rate for ground shipping. And that’s before you add in the surcharges for fuel, residential deliveries, and the peak season. Worst of all, the list of fees and surcharges is going up every year. But brands are wary of transitioning to a modern delivery provider due to misconceptions, including: 

  • Same- and next-day deliveries are expensive
  • Ability to deliver at scale
  • The perceived difficulties of working with new carriers

Many modern last-mile delivery carriers have new technologies that help, not hurt, their ability to provide fast deliveries at affordable prices, sometimes at close-to-ground rates. Furthermore, that same technology that supports fast deliveries often scales easily too. Plus, some modern delivery providers, including AxleHire, have built their platforms to provide the most efficient warehouse-to-doorstep experience for not only the customer but the brand.

With Amazon having reset consumer’s expectations for fast deliveries combined with the rapid growth of e-commerce, brands need to provide their online customers with:

  • A great delivery experience, incl. real-time tracking and communications
  • Sustainable deliveries without giving up speed or convenience
Modern, tech-enabled delivery providers have developed fast, efficient last-mile services with e-commerce consumers' high expectations in mind. To ensure you can provide the superior package delivery experience customers demand, here are the seven must-haves you need from your last-mile delivery service provider.
