5 Steps for Parcel to Post Delivery
Putting together a comprehensive supply chain logistics plan for your business comes with a multitude of challenges and opportunities. One of these opportunities is choosing a final mile provider with the right strategy for your needs. This is why businesses are optimizing the USPS delivery network through last mile delivery of post and parcel. In this model you have the benefits of reaching every doorstep with the speed of last mile experts. Parcel to post final mile delivery transports packages as quickly, accurately, and as affordably as possible. The last mile can make up more than half of the shipping cost because it involves more stops and different destinations vs large scale shipping to a single location. Why not use the biggest network in America and use the USPS? Here are five reasons why TForce Logistics, a final mile provider, increases speed to post office for faster delivery.
Start with the standard safe and timely delivery, now add real-time tracking. Customers want the ability to check the status of a delivery along the way. To meet these expectations, all tracking information is provided via scanning by both TForce Logistics and the USPS, at every step of the way.
Thanks to the second wave of internet, we live at a time where we expect packages within a few days of ordering. By zone-skipping, we reduce the total start to finish shipping time. By driving directly to the ideal post office, you meet the expected standard of same day/next day shipping.
