Last Mile Experts is about:
Last mile effectiveness, what’s it about?
Last Mile Experts is one of the very few specialist e-commerce last mile and CEP (courier, express & parcel) consultancies.
Our experts have joint experience of several hundred years in our specialist areas and real ”hands-on” knowledge in a broad spectrum of last mile related areas. While many of us have been consultants before, all of us are practitioners…and therefore the solutions we suggest have usually already been tried and tested by us before.
We are continually expanding our specialist capabilities and expertise into arguably the largest European network for a specialist consultancy in our area. Our focus allows us to offer industry best practice in even the most focused issues. In addition, we have relationships with many key suppliers of hardware and software for optimising sortation, middle and last mile courier and parcel logistics.
Our key activities have been in the M&A space, primarily for Private Equity, but also for industry players. We actively strive to support CEP and Postal operators in optimising their networks and providing a truly customer-centric service. Also, we seek to help e-commerce players and other key stakeholders to understand how important the “Last Mile” is in any click to deliver process and how best to co-operate with suppliers for mutual, and above all, customer benefit.
Last Mile Experts is a highly specialised consultancy focusing exclusively on all aspects of courier express parcel (CEP), postal and e-commerce last mile logistics. Our goal is to help CEP companies, postal operators, e-commerce players, potential investors or other stakeholders to improve their performance, operations, organisation and technology as well as strategy development or M&A.
