The First Mile is the New Final Mile

April 14th, 2021
5 minute read
In the past five years, the final mile of the international supply chain has been transformed by technology, and you can now get products delivered to your door the same day.
Paradoxically, the exact same product that arrived at your door the same day likely took around four months to get to the center that shipped it to you.

Why the difference?

Unlike the final mile, the first mile has not gone through a transformation. It is almost entirely analog and very opaque.

The lengthy, complicated, disconnected international supply chain is likely the largest system not yet disrupted by technology. This is incredible, considering we purchase $2.1 trillion of imported products in the U.S. alone annually.
