3G-blog-featured-image-How are Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, and Others Impacting Last-Mile Delivery-1200x627

Companies like Uber, Lyft, and DoorDash are impacting last-mile delivery in previously unseen ways, like improving delivery speed, enhancing driver flexibility, and providing advanced tracking.

Amid the fast pace of today’s logistics and transportation market, shippers are under increasing pressure to enhance efficiency and control costs. The frontline workers responsible for critical tasks like route planning, overseeing compliance, or driving vehicles can no longer keep up with the pace of the industry using just spreadsheets and manual systems.

As digital transformation continues to accelerate customer expectations for shipping speeds, inefficient, manual transportation management can be devastating to productivity. On top of slowing down processes, operations that rely on spreadsheets and cumbersome management methods quickly rack up unnecessary costs from inefficiency, especially when it comes to labor.

Supply chains are only becoming more complex in terms of scale and the speed with which they move goods. With each passing day, we also see more and more of how limiting it is to use manual systems and track shipments with multiple tools, making it difficult to handle the high volume of shipments necessary to compete in this landscape. This gap in performance is now leading to inefficiencies, a high number of errors, and a lack of real-time visibility into the supply chain. 

The logistics landscape is rapidly changing amid growing supply chain complexity, evolving customer demands, and global inflation. Shippers are caught in the middle of this upheaval, required to adapt quickly while maintaining profits. In this environment, embracing digital transformation is essential for shippers to remain competitive.
