The US1 Shorthaul Division has received the 2023 Middle Mile Safety-Yard Provider of the Year Award from the Target Corporation, and we couldn’t be more proud!
This prestigious award recognizes the efficient and tactful work of our short-haul division, where safety is of the utmost importance. Our drivers and team ensure deliveries are made on time, while implementing safe driving practices sharpened through regular training and the use of the latest supply chain technology.
Shorthaul is such an important part of the delivery circuit. For middle-mile delivery specifically, short-haul professionals handle the distribution and delivery processes between the first and final mile of a delivery.
Elevates Connectivity Between Distribution Centers
Middle-mile trucking facilitates the movement of goods between various distribution centers and logistics hubs. This connectivity is crucial for maintaining a well-functioning and agile supply chain.
Supply Chain Optimization
By utilizing the latest supply chain management software to increase visibility and communication, businesses are able to quickly balance stock and respond to changes in demand, reducing the risk of stockouts or overstock situations.
Supports E-Commerce Logistics
E-commerce platforms rely on the efficient movement of goods from fulfillment centers to regional distribution centers to meet the demands of online shoppers. Middle-mile trucking helps make those 2-day or same-day deliveries happen!
Supports the Last-Mile
Shipments are consolidated at distribution centers through middle-mile trucking, streamlining the last-mile. This helps reduce challenges, such as congestion, delivery delays, and increased costs.
Shorter driving distances result in cost savings for businesses, as shorter routes may require less fuel and incur fewer maintenance costs.
Better JIT (Just-In-Time) Inventory Practices
JIT inventory practices are supported, because products are delivered to distribution centers precisely when they are needed. This contributes to a more efficient use of warehouse space and can reduce the need for excessive inventory storage.
