As consumers increasingly turn to e-commerce for all their shopping needs, speedy fulfillment isn't just a "nice to have" — it's the expectation of every online shopping experience.
With the ongoing pandemic, e-commerce has surged and shows no signs of slowing down. Tackling the challenge of last mile delivery in an efficient and cost-effective way is going to be critical for businesses to survive, let alone compete.
With a surge in the need for transportation logistics providers, The Charge Transport delivery ecosystem is gaining traction with the first acquisition of several FedEx routes in the NY Metro Area. (Closing January 2021)
As more physical retail goes online, Charge Transport is uniquely positioned to impact the next generation of e-commerce.
Charge Transports division will build out new and acquire more delivery routes globally, add electrification and autonomous capability to deliver 10’s of millions of parcels a day whilst constantly innovating and utilising our shared resources.
Delivery drones are becoming part of the modal offering. They will be particularly valuable in areas where access by road is difficult or for the urgent delivery of medical supplies. Their deployment is likely to be the highest in low density urban or rural areas, whereas regulations and limited landing space will likely throttle their deployment in cities.
The last mile delivery ecosystem is gaining traction with big players joining the fray and investing in EV-led mobility that are not only environment-friendly, but also economical.
Delivery vehicles of the future will go electric which will enable logistics players to continue operating in areas where polluting vehicles will increasingly be banned. Autonomous driving technology will allow for a drastic reduction in the cost of delivery, thus triggering further growth in e-commerce volume. Charge Transport is a new type logistical structure that has emerged to address this new paradigm.
From setting up of recharging stations, using existing infrastructure to accommodate EV recharges, battery swapping facilities are already on the cards and we lead the charge in tackling these obstacles along the way to EV-led delivery.
