Final mile delivery is as it sounds: the final step in the delivery process. It’s when the item in question finally arrives at its destination, completing the product’s journey. The focus of final mile logistics is generally to deliver items as fast as possible, with today’s expectation being two days or less. But what is the true role of final mile delivery, and why is it so necessary in terms of assurance?
Get a quick overview of final mile delivery before choosing your transportation partner. And for help ensuring that your delivery makes it to its final mile, consult the shipping experts at Pyramid Logistics.
What is Final Mile Delivery?
As discussed in a previous post, final mile delivery is the last leg of the delivery process–when the product reaches its destination. Business owners often partner with third-party logistics (3PL) providers for further efficiency and transparency with their shipping, whether it be expedited delivery or live tracking updates. All-in-all, the expectations of a final mile delivery include prompt shipping within two days, modernized online tracking, and damage-free transportation to ensure your goods maintain their value.

Efficiency and transparency are two of the most daunting challenges to final mile delivery. Your logistics partner should keep deliveries down to two days as a standard and maintain transparency through live tracking updates. Here’s how Pyramid Logistics assures clients during the final mile of their delivery:
