Transportation and logistics companies face many challenges when trying to meet customer demands and make faster deliveries. One of the most challenging and overlooked processes that can improve deliveries is maintaining effective connectivity in the last mile. Warehouses have to secure dependable wireless connectivity to connect to remote drivers. This is especially important in the last mile since drivers are the farthest away from help. In the event of any order or routing changes, the last mile is the last opportunity for companies to reach drivers. Despite its crucial importance, 59% of third-party logistics companies in the US believe that last-mile delivery is the most inefficient process in their supply chain. Last-mile delivery is also important because it makes up 53% of total transportation costs.
Improper wireless connectivity affects order delivery as warehouses are unable to communicate and proactively pass on information to delivery teams, thus enabling delays and hindering brand image. Moreover, slow WiFi makes it harder to efficiently complete tasks, which can make employees frustrated and result in morale issues and productivity issues in the workplace. Lastly, if wireless connections impact productivity within the four walls, it will certainly bolster expenses and headaches in the last mile as drivers are unable to communicate with warehouse teams.
