The Birth of Pick-Up StoresOne of the biggest values delivered by the eCommerce companies is the last-mile connectivity. The term last-mile connectivity refers to the movement of products from a fulfilment centre or delivery hub to the end consumer. Last-mile connectivity established by the eCommerce companies introduced a lot of convenience to the customer, but at the same time posed many challenges.
The biggest challenge for the customer is that either she or one of her representatives has to be available to collect the product.
