Last Mile Home Will Feature Its Best Logistics Practices
With A National Furniture Retailer
Mendota Heights — March 26, 2015 — Last Mile Home will bring its very successful track record of high end furniture handling and logistics to this year’s Home Delivery World held at the Atlanta Convention Center at AmericasMart in Atlanta, GA on April 8-9, 2015.
Last Mile Home was given the task by a nationally recognized high end furniture retailer of improving the performance of a regional distribution center that was at the bottom of more than 40 separate centers for the retailer. Today the center operated by Last Mile Home is consistently in the top 20 performers among that retailer’s distribution centers. The overall performance was recognized by the retailer and rewarded Last Mile Home with additional centers such as our facility serving the Chicago market.
“The work we conducted on behalf of this national retailer was challenging and rewarding. Our best practices for blanket and shrink wrapping clearly protect the high end pieces we handle. Combine that with efficient routing techniques, professional driver teams, and real-time communications provided by networked tablets and you have a recipe for success,” said Brian Tennant, General Manager, Last Mile Home.
Home Delivery World 2015 will bring together the heads of operations, fulfillment, and logistics from big box and mid-size retailers to discuss the current challenges in optimizing delivery options, including final mile delivery, reverse logistics, omnichannel fulfillment and other current trends.
On-floor seminars held in the expo hall will host more than 30 distinguished speakers, including industry leaders from Birchbox, Hello Fresh, Rent A Gent, Treatsie, and Swipbox.
