The global market for last mile delivery, which involves the final step of delivering items to their destination, is growing quickly. It’s expected to increase by 8.13% each year from 2023 to 2033. A study from Evolve Business Intelligence noted that this market was worth USD 132.71 billion in 2022. This growth is mainly due to more customers wanting fast delivery services like same-day or next-day delivery. They also want to know where their deliveries are in real-time. As online shopping continues to grow, especially in North America, companies are using new technologies to make their delivery operations better and keep customers happy.

Many companies face challenges such as city traffic, environmental concerns, and managing complex delivery operations. To deal with these challenges, more and more companies are using Artificial Intelligence (AI), which helps them plan better and manage their delivery services more effectively.
