How Can Last Mile Delivery Help Local Retailers?

How Can Last Mile Delivery Help Local Retailers

Until recently, online shoppers were happy waiting 2 or 3 days when shopping for products online. As online shopping has evolved and Amazon has raised the bar on delivery times, online shoppers now expect their orders to arrive in almost the same time it would take to go to a retail location and just buy the product. However, as online shopping has given retail brick and mortar locations a run for their money, local retailers now offer more products for sale online only than they keep in stock in their retail locations. In turn, shoppers are demanding faster delivery times for retail products that are only offered online by their favorite big-box retailers, florists, fruit producers, manufacturers, industrial supply companies, clothing and apparel, and other industries in the Fort Myers area. While the big guys, such as Amazon, are exploring and utilizing crowdsourcing, known as Amazon Flex in conjunction with ride-sharing services and exploring the use of drones, local Fort Myers retailers possess a phenomenal tool in the last mile delivery race.
