Down to the Last Mile: FCL Sprinter Network

 

 

To understand the value of sprinter vans in the world of logistics, we first have to examine the so-called “final mile problem.” The last mile of an item’s journey from the warehouse to its final destination accounts for more than half of total shipping costs, representing both a serious pain point and significant opportunity to gain an edge on competitors for those businesses aiming to solve the problem through technological investment and smarter supply chain models.

In this ongoing hunt for the optimal delivery model, fleets of regional sprinter vans have emerged as cost-effective options for ensuring individual items reach their end users on time.

Sprinter vans are less than half the size of your average dry van or flatbed truck, and thus don’t require a commercial driver’s license to operate. They’re also a cheaper financial investment than a full-size truck, yet they boast enormous flexibility for delivering small everyday products. These factors contribute to a growing class of regional drivers and businesses operating sprinter vans (also referred to as cargo vans), carrying LTL deliveries and parcels to multiple destinations each day.

Countless businesses lean on sprinter van shipping for residential deliveries. As such, sprinter van operators carry a disproportionate impact on a customer’s overall experience with individual brands, sometimes even interacting with users face-to-face. With such widespread availability and the power to dramatically affect customer perception of your business, it pays to go through a 3PL with a trusted network of sprinter vans and drivers operating under the highest standards of professionalism.
