Hubl enables the ultimate ‘last green mile’ logistics fulfilment system .
It focuses on developing technology to provide superior delivery services to householders and businesses, way beyond what is currently available.
The home delivery market has seen dramatic growth over the last few years and recently, growth has been explosive, driven by the global pandemic.
But there’s a problem:
When goods arrive at a high-capacity freight station or port and are then transported to their final destination, this last leg [i.e. the ‘last-mile’] of the supply chain becomes hugely inefficient and costly for the providers and their customers.
Last-mile delivery can comprise anything from 28% to 50% of the total transportation cost to its final destination. Even a market leader like Amazon is having to foot the bill for this unacceptable situation. This is such a serious issue for e-commerce businesses that it has become known as the ‘last-mile problem’.
Additionally, urban congestion in the UK is now reaching untenable levels, and the contribution to pollution and CO2 emissions is spiralling out of control. With London alone forecasting a >20% percent increase in van traffic within the next 15 years, due solely to goods bought on the Internet, a breath of fresh air is needed to address this environmental challenge.
Yet the typical last-mile delivery model has done little to improve matters.
This is why Hubl has a great opportunity to drive change by enabling a new logistics model driven by advanced technology – and a new vision for last mile delivery both in the UK and globally.
At Hubl, we are seeking to change the way goods move through cities with the focus on the customer – a rare thing in last mile delivery.
