LaserShip Helps to Solve the "Last Mile" Shipping Challenge
May 16, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsMay 16, 2014 - Vienna, VA - LaserShip, the premier last mile parcel carrier to the retail industry, offers a cost-effective solution for the last mile delivery challenge of the transportation industry. Transporting goods via freight rail networks and container ships is often the most efficient and cost-effective manner of shipping. However, when goods arrive at a high-capacity freight station or port, they must then be transported to their final destination. This last leg of the supply chain is often less efficient, comprising up to 28 percent of the total cost to move goods.
LaserShip's large and continuously expanding "one-day" footprint connects companies with over a third of US residences at standard ground rates. LaserShip efficiently and effectively facilitates same day delivery in 28 major metropolitan markets on the East Coast of the US, to ensure that deliveries arrive in a timely fashion right to clients' doorsteps.
To help clients complete the last mile delivery, LaserShip's unique capabilities include later pull times, accessorial fee flexibility, Saturday and Sunday delivery options, and integrated transportation and warehouse management systems.
