Learn More About TMC's Final Mile Delivery Services

on Monday, April 29, 2024 in Company News

TMC is known for our long-distance over-the-road flatbed transportation services, but did you know we also deliver shipments directly to individual customers?

Known as final mile delivery, this critical stage of transportation process takes items from the distribution center to the buyer. It’s often incredibly complicated, as smaller deliveries are going to individual homes and businesses. This requires careful planning of deliveries to maximize efficiency, as well as individualized attention from drivers.

The Challenges of the Final Mile

Final mile delivery is vital because it connects goods to their end users. But it often requires careful planning because each delivery must be carefully tailored to the customer.

Are items being delivered to a home, a business, or a construction site? How will the driver navigate to the delivery site? What is involved in unloading the delivery? Are the items large and bulky, or do they require special handling? All of these factors have to be carefully considered for a final mile delivery to be successful.

With all these challenges, it’s no surprise that you need an experienced, professional final mile delivery provider to make sure it’s done right.

How TMC Helps Customers Succeed in the Final Mile

What makes TMC a leader in final mile delivery? Here are just a few of the factors that set us apart.

  • The right equipment for the job. TMC is known for our perfectly polished Peterbilt trucks that power every delivery we make, whether it’s over-the-road or final mile. We also rely on Moffett truck-mounted forklifts to allow our drivers to move items off the flatbed during final mile deliveries.
  • Experienced, skilled drivers. Every TMC driver is trained to be professional and safe on the road, but final mile drivers undergo additional specialized training to make sure that they can use the Moffett forklift safely and follow OSHA guidelines for delivering to homes, businesses, and construction sites.
  • Industry-leading route planning. TMC’s fleet managers ensure that every final mile route is expertly planned out for maximum efficiency. This means that buyers will receive their deliveries when they need them, while your delivery costs stay low.
  • The same TMC commitment to safety and quality that we bring to every trip. TMC is known for our dedication to outstanding service and safety—and it’s no different in our final mile services. We’re committed to delivering every load safely and on time, whether we’re taking it over the highway or through a neighborhood, as well as providing the impeccable customer service that TMC has been known for since 1972.
