Global Last Mile Delivery Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global last-mile delivery market size is expected to reach USD 157.08 billion in 2023 and reach USD 170.21 billion in 2024 and is anticipated to reach a valuation of USD 254.29 billion by 2029. Growing at a CAGR of 8.36% from 2024 to 2029.

The last-mile delivery of a package is one of the most significant steps in the tracking process. This is because it's the last step when the package is delivered to the end user. It's also one of the most critical steps as customers want the package delivered fast. Firstly, the product needs to be ordered, which is entered into the centralized system to track it to ensure it is shipped. The second step of the process is ensuring that the order is transferred from the distribution center to the customer within the shortest time possible. In the third step, delivery personnel are assigned a specific route and address depending on the intended recipient. The fourth step is the scanning of the orders before they are loaded onto the delivery vehicles to which they will be delivered.

After this stage, the parcel reaches its destination, which is the point at which it reaches its destination. As soon as the delivery personnel verified and confirmed that the delivery had been successful, they updated the tracking information on the system. 

The various benefits offered such as integrating last mile delivery software to facilitate deliveries with minimal human intervention, automating route planning to arrive at the source of the delivery at minimum time, tracking your parcel at any time, and increasing productivity are driving this market. With the increase in Internet users, it is also expected that the market share of last-mile delivery will continue to rise.

There is a lack of transparency throughout the last-mile delivery process, which remains a significant barrier to market expansion. However, improved visibility can also open new opportunities for market expansion. A high delivery cost is also one of the most significant factors that are preventing the market from growing at a faster pace.

Global Last Mile Delivery Market By Vehicle Type

When it comes to last-mile delivery, drones are less expensive to purchase and operate than traditional modes of transportation.
