Final Mile Delivery

A Buffalo-based subscription of the month company found that their current supply chain was incredibly cost and labor-intensive. Looking to move away from large, big box carriers, this subscription of the month company looked to PITT OHIO for a more cost-effective, streamlined customized solution.

Generally, households are the final destination of a subscription of the month companies’ shipments.

This business to customer (B2C) task requires considerably more stops and special instructions than business to business (B2B) requests. Due to this level of complexity, the majority of their carriers were charging higher than normal freight bills and surcharges.

From a shipper’s perspective, excellent service with fair prices is top priority.

Typically, final mile deliveries require more time and customization which in turn can drive up the cost for the shipment. To combat the high shipping costs and streamline their supply chain process, this company pursued a new carrier to manage last mile deliveries across the country for an appropriate price.
