What is Final Mile Delivery?

by | Sep 12, 2018

These days, e-commerce has taken over. Almost everyone has done some shopping online. The best part is that everything you purchase comes straight to your door. Zipp Express wants to be your final mile delivery partner.

It’s a fantastic system for the busy customer. But sometimes, for the companies making the sales, it can create logistical challenges. If a company wants to stay competitive and make quick, on-time deliveries, choosing a quality final mile delivery partner is essential.

What does that mean exactly? A final mile delivery partner is a consistent, credible partner in a specific location that provides assistance in delivering items from a transportation hub to their destination. Choosing a partner that you can rely on is essential to creating an automated system and satisfying your customers!

Zipp Express can provide final mile shipping on a regular basis, tailored to a company’s specific needs. Final mile delivery can make or break a transaction, and Zipp Express can elevate a company’s experience by providing quality services.

The Ability to Warehouse Shipments

It’s never a bad thing to be a bit early. If a shipment arrives a few days ahead of schedule, Zipp Express can hold the items. The Zipp Express warehouse is conveniently located just off two major highways. It offers 40,000 square feet of space to easily accommodate any cargo storage needs. The warehouse has cross-dock capacity, and the facility is monitored with a state-of-the-art security system. For higher value items, there is even a 2,000 square foot caged area for enhanced security.

Additionally, companies have the option to store inventory at the Zipp Express warehouse, if their business determines a need for items to be readily available.

The Ability to Transfer Shipments

An important aspect to consider when choosing a final mile delivery partner is the accessible transportation hubs. In St. Louis, Lambert International Airport is the most common delivery transfer location.  Zipp Express utilizes TSA-compliant drivers and can handle your time-critical air freight needs. Zipp Express will recover deliveries from Lambert and ship anywhere within a 150-mile radius of the St. Louis area.

Daily, weekly, and monthly delivery service options are available, as well as expedited services in the contiguous United States.

Special Delivery Needs

In addition to regular deliveries Zipp Express has the capability to handle high-profile and time-critical deliveries such as medical equipment. White glove services are available in one-man or multi-man teams depending on the business’s needs.

Zipp Express also provides regular scheduling for repeat customers, allowing companies to plan their logistics ahead of time.

Ensuring that deliveries arrive on time is essential, and Zipp Express has been doing just that since 1989. Over the years, the Zipp Express team has expanded its services and focused on professionalism and customer service.
