Distribution

Reaching Products at the Right Time, Right Place and at the Right Quantities

It is not the Best Product which wins in the market – It is the best Supply Chain.

In a supply chain, a distribution network is an interconnected group of storage facilities and transportation systems that receive inventories of goods and then deliver them to customers. It is an intermediate point to get products from the manufacturer to the end customer, either directly or through a retail network. Availability of products on the shelf when the customer wants is the key performance measure for any distribution network. Lastmile helps customers to plan, execute and monitor their distribution through the facilities and services provided by Lastmile.

We help you design your distribution network based on the Centre of Gravity of demand for the products. Our Solution Design team works closely with our customers to continuously monitor and optimise the network and as a result – optimise cost.

We are your Go-to-Market partner helping businesses to achieve the targeted width and depth of distribution for their products. We facilitate distribution through a network of our Distribution Centres spread across the country with attached transportation facilities.

We help businesses in India to sell through all channels like Dealer/Distributors, Direct to Retail, Rural Van Sales, Modern Format replenishments, E-Commerce platforms and Online Retail with direct to home deliveries through an On Demand Logistics Execution Network.
