13 Aug Final Mile Shipping With Mactrans Posted at 14:53h in Blog by Mactrans Logistics Share The Final Mile’ is a well-known term in the Logistics industry. While our transportation experts work tirelessly to consider every mile that extends between an initial shipment and its final destination, it is, oftentimes, the final stretch which holds the most weight. After all, the path to fulfillment can be rife with complications, and online retailers and consumers rely on available supply chains to deliver their goods to their doorstep in a timely, effective manner. As consumers increasingly favour an online shopping experience, especially within the COVID-19 era, seamless fulfillment of shipments is hardly a ‘nice to have’; rather, it’s a must-have.The ‘final mile’ is the final step of a shipment’s journey and, perhaps unsurprisingly, often represents the most costly (and time-consuming) part of the shipping process. Over the years, Mactrans Logistics has developed an in-depth final-mile delivery program, FinalMileCanada.com™, to ensure traditional and online retailers could provide their customers with multiple residential delivery options across Canada with ease. Of course, covering the Canadian territories in this manner is no small undertaking; with a population of over 35 million, and a landmass that exceeds 9.98 million square kilometers, it can become difficult to get products into eagerly waiting hands. Expansive geography and an ever-growing population base means that no one carrier can effectively provide residential delivery options coast to coast.Fortunately, as a Canadian Third Party Logistics provider Mactrans has the carrier base and expertise to provide a nation-wide residential delivery solution. We utilize many Less Than Trailer Load (LTL) and moving companies to provide clients with whatever service level and the price point they require. We also work exclusively with vetted, pre-qualified carriers so our customers’ freight is in good hands when managed by Mactrans.With offices in Toronto and Montreal, we offer clients access to bilingual logistic professionals while facilitating curb-side delivery, first room delivery, and white-glove service to ensure the ‘final mile’ is completed in expert fashion. Across both rural and urban areas, we work closely with our clients to reduce the costs and inefficiencies normally associated with the final mile and consistently meet and exceed customer expectations.
