Last mile delivery refers to a parcel or freight being delivered to the end user. This is the last stop on a Local or Global Supply Chain. Last Mile destinations are typically fed into a hub that is located within 50 miles of the end user’s location. Our warehouse near Washington DC provides the perfect location for such a hub. Parcels are efficiently delivered to our warehouse, then they are sorted and delivered on daily routes throughout the Washington/Baltimore metropolitan area. This type of distribution is called “Pooled Distribution”.
By offering pooled distribution and dedicated-route services Swift is a solution to your last mile delivery needs. Swift will analyze your requirements and create a routed program that works for your business and your customers. Thus allowing you to reduce costs and increase productivity.
Pooled logistics can provide an immense amount of savings versus shipping each order individually. This type of service is beneficial to companies with multiple deliveries going to the same location or locations within close- proximity. Our flat-rate and multi-parcel formula makes budgeting worry-free!
