Logistics at the middle mile—where goods are shipped from the warehouse to the distribution center—are increasingly coming under the spotlight. Taking control of the middle mile requires real-time visibility of the movement of goods in transit, enabling deliveries to reach their final destination with minimum disruption and maximum control.
A successful middle mile uses technology to track vehicles, schedule deliveries, and determine the capabilities of the drivers and fulfillment centers. But if the technology isn’t seamlessly integrated into middle-mile operations, challenges can arise, from a lack of visibility into stock availability and location, to difficulties calculating margins on a granular level.
Getting the right technology into the warehouse is key to optimizing delivery routes, lowering costs, and—above all—laying the foundations for success at the last mile.
