Don’t let disproportionate fees take
a heavy toll on your coin purse.
Getting product into and out of your transportation network can make or break your supply-chain economics. If you aren’t careful, first-mile pickups and last-mile urban-area deliveries can run up to 28% of total shipping costs. At WhiteStar we can help you avoid such fees waiting to ambush your budget at the gate.
At WhiteStar, we handle it all — from first mile pickups to final delivery on the customer’s doorstep. This way you have the economies of scale working in your favor. Our services span the entire supply chain journey including long-haul trucking, rail or container ship. As a result, our first mile and last mile rates are lower since fees are mitigated by our turn key service.
Our distribution centers have been designed to facilitate all supply chain logistics from the first mile to the last in keeping with the growth of e-commerce and rapid delivery expectations of today’s consumers.
Overall, last mile delivery is generally the least efficient and most costly component of the greater delivery cycle. It helps to have a company with the infrastructure in place to avoid hit or miss deliveries since unsuccessful delivery attempts are a prime factor behind the inflation of last-mile prices.
There's no need to pay high fees for first-mile or last-mile service. Contact us today and get one competive price that opens the gate to supply-chain economy.
