Autonomy and teleoperations are helping fleet and logistics operators address the labor shortage by performing more work with fewer resources.
Labor constraints, high employee turnover, and a predicted shortage of 64,000 truck drivers this year,¹ are all pushing transportation and logistics (T&L) organizations to rethink the “last mile” of the supply chain.
The final step of the delivery process—where shipments are moved from a distribution hub to their final destination—the last mile—is both resource and time-intensive. In fact, this single leg can account for up to 53% of overall shipping costs.² Fuel, delivery location, manpower, and failure to deliver the goods can all add up quickly in the last mile.
