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