The need to deliver more parcels faster and at a lower cost to meet increasing customer expectations is more crucial than ever. Compared to first & middle mile, the level of complexity in last mile routing is much higher as it requires multiple stops, time windows, pick up/drop off priorities, combined with traffic, and physical dimensions of vehicles. Whether you're a major player or a small-to-medium enterprise, you need to evaluate how you connect with customers and enhance capacity to meet their buying habits.

Historically, peak hour counts on 1 day have been considered sufficient to determine typical traffic trends for design purposes. However, in reality, traffic pattern changes every day and should be backed up with larger data samples from 7-day or 5-day counts. The pandemic has forced workplaces to let their employees to work from home and this trend is expected to last even after the pandemic is over. With more flexible and remote work arrangements post-pandemic, there will be a shift in the commuting behaviour in cities and it will be even more important to monitor in a full week to capture a more accurate traffic pattern.
The movement of people and goods in urban areas are getting increasingly complex. With the shift in mobility preferences, the emergence of autonomous vehicles, and the complexity of ever-changing traffic conditions, many mobility professionals today are trying to develop strategies that drive operational efficiency while ensuring positive consumer experience and safety.
