Let's take a look at 10 compelling stats related to the most important part of modern logistics operations. Last-mile delivery. We hope you find them useful. 

A 36% increase in the number of delivery vehicles is expected in the top 100 cities globally by 2030. This will cause congestion to rise by over 21%, equalling an additional 11 minutes of commute time for each passenger every day.

As the numbers suggest, the last mile is the most critical, complicated aspect of the delivery journey. Reducing your carbon footprint by building efficiency in the emissions-heavy last mile also resonates with today’s consumers. Delivering a last-mile experience with tracking pleases consumers will give brands a competitive advantage.
