On the Move Keeps Fleet Services Moving

The fleet industry is transforming, mainly due to consumer demand. Instead of delivering goods to warehouses, they are being shipped directly to the buyer. This last stretch of the product journey is called the “final mile.” In this scenarios, there is a huge need for a better, easier to handle truck.

The “Final Mile” Is Changing Delivery

The “final mile” phenomenon is changing the types of vehicles needed. Brands are looking for smaller vehicles that can perform well in urban and suburban settings. The reality is that large vehicles cost a tremendous amount of money. According to Spot My Freight and other industry experts, fleets cost about $1.38 per mile with a total of $180,000 needed to operate each commercial truck.[1]

Delivering to the Buyer’s Doorstep

The “final mile” is evolving as subscription box services and local delivery services surge in popularity.

According to McKinsey research, the industry grew 100% from 2011 to 2016, with the largest players in the field scoring sales of over $2.6 billion.[2] In addition to subscription services, almost all local companies offer delivery direct to customers, including groceries, florists, and other goods.

From beauty products to pet care to meal kits, the modern consumer wants easy delivery. A new type of fleet is needed to achieve this.

Why Smaller Trucks Make Sense

To answer this need in the market, On the Move offers “final mile” fleet services, with trucks that maneuver well and cost less to operate in commercial and residential areas. On the Move has been providing trucks to a variety of verticals, so it only makes sense to adapt to the changing delivery fleet ecosystem.

Here are a few benefits of our fleets:

  • Navigate smaller roadways, including tight city streets and neighborhoods—go places 18-wheelers cannot
  • Enjoy better gas mileage and contribute less carbon dioxide to the atmosphere
  • Choose from a larger pool of drivers, as no special license is required
  • Protect your assets, as smaller trucks are less likely to be in a collision than 18-wheelers
  • Wrap the entire truck in custom graphics
  • Experience better aerodynamics versus 18-wheelers
  • Reduce costs associated with transit refrigeration
  • Expand your fleet with less expensive per vehicle costs

It’s Time to Rethink Your Fleet

For some time, there hasn’t been a good alternative for local delivery. Large trucks are too costly and hard to maintain. Personal vehicles don’t have the space necessary and can include liability issues in the result of an accident. On the Move delivers a better solution with our trucks. They have the space needed but without the drawbacks of larger trucks. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to brand your vehicle with a full vinyl wrap that can be seen by thousands of people every day. Get started with On the Move by viewing all the options they offer for your fleet needs
