First Mile Delivery
First mile logistics refers to the initial stage of the supply chain process, where the final goods are picked up from the supplier or manufacturer and transported to a warehouse or a distribution center.
"First mile" is an important aspect of logistics as it sets the foundation for the rest of the supply chain process.
The meaning of "first mile" can vary depending on the specific supply chain and industry. For example, a retailer may interpret the first mile as the transportation of goods from a regional warehouse to a nearby distribution center or store location. First-mile shipping in biotechnology and life sciences can mean transporting biological materials, such as samples and products, from the point of origin to a central laboratory or research facility.
