We all desire safe communities for ourselves, our family, and our friends. However, if you start a conversation on community safety, it is likely to tackle issues such as crime and anti-social behaviour. Yet, as we relax in our gardens or work within our homes, vehicle noise and pollution are ever-present. One of the worst offenders is commercial vehicles, particularly last mile delivery vehicles.
Even if you live on a quiet cul-de-sac, your next parcel delivery will likely be made in a petrol or diesel van that disturbs the peace and creates air pollution that has the potential to instigate coughing and sneezing while having longer-term detrimental effects on your and your family’s health.
From a business’s perspective, plenty of focus might be put on developing environmentally friendly or healthy products. But it is hard to meet or exceed the expectations of your customers if that product arrives in a manner that is not conducive to your green ethics.
Meeting & Exceeding Customer Expectations
Any business that sells a service or product should strive to meet and exceed its customer’s expectations. This is often achieved by having a differentiating factor that makes your company stand out and shows it is going further to delight its customers than its competitors.
Final mile delivery that is speedy and efficient is an excellent advertisement and an excellent way to promote your brand. Furthermore, customers are prepared to pay more for products that boast fast last mile delivery, which will help your business protect more of its hard-earned revenue and profit.
Minimal Disruption Or Environmental Impact
The customer’s mindset and values continue to change, and last mile logistics and the modern supply chain need to evolve to meet these views. As a staple, customers want to have better control over where and when delivery takes place. However, how that last mile delivery takes place is just as vital.
The environmental impact of businesses has never been under a closer microscope. From broader impacts such as climate change to localised concerns such as air quality and noise pollution, your last mile delivery solution should lead by example.
One way of achieving minimal disruption and environmental impact is to build a fleet of electric last mile delivery vehicles. Electric last mile delivery vehicles and trucks have near-silent engines that help residential areas, and town centres move towards a peaceful serenity. Furthermore, no exhaust fumes are released, ensuring the air is not polluted or filled with undesirable odours.
The charging speed, load capacity, towing capacity, vehicle range, and miles per hour have seen significant improvements, meaning that battery power is a real contender to petrol and diesel, with added benefits such as less vehicle maintenance, reduced fuel bills, and greater vehicle manoeuvrability.
