What is “final mile” shipping?
Final mile delivery is what it sounds like: transporting cargo to its final destination. Where some logistics companies may only be able to transport your goods from port to port or warehouse to warehouse, Approved has fleets of smaller trucks and delivery vans on Hawaii, Guam and in Alaska that can move every piece and parcel to a distribution center, retail outlet, and even to a customer’s doorstep. Plus, our network of partners makes delivering internationally and on the mainland U.S. simple and affordable.Read More
It’s more than just hardware: our experienced freight delivery teams will help from the project planning stage all the way through that final mile, delivering expertise at both the most strategic levels and during hands-on, tactical execution.
Our final mile services are in fact “final step services” as our teams will not only ensure delivery to a location, but offer white-glove service, curbside delivery, and inside delivery as well — carrying goods upstairs, assembling and installing, removing any debris, etc.
Any and all cargo
Relying on more than one supplier? No problem: Approved will work with your suppliers, offering pickup services that kick into gear the day your goods are available.
Delivering goods to more than one location or distributor? Approved has the trucks and teams to get all your goods from the ports and warehouses to their final destination on a schedule that works for you.
Not only do our delivery services cover the last mile — they even cover the last few steps of the journey as our team of specialists and partners can provide inside delivery, customized assembly, installation, and debris removal services.
