Downstream optimization is crucial to increasing throughput and driving cost reduction in a system. A recent statistic from the United Nations estimates that by 2030, the population living in big cities will increase by 55%, making last mile delivery critical for logistic companies. Last mile logistics centres are becoming even more crucial to the effectiveness of the entire distribution network.

This ensures a fast and reliable delivery experience for end consumers.
