Locus has released a new research report – Decoding Asia’s Last-Mile Maturity, uncovering valuable insights about the current state of last-mile logistics in India, Indonesia, the UAE, and other Asian countries.
The report reveals that 79 percent of businesses across Asia are harnessing the technology to enhance their last-mile efficiency, but a staggering 84 percent lack confidence in their processes to drive growth and enhance customer experiences.
The report unveils the performance of the businesses across five key logistics metrics, including Last-Mile Excellence, Customer Experience, Workforce Empowerment, Advanced Analytics, and Sustainability.

Specifically, carbon emissions tracking is overlooked in 3 out of 5 industries.
Overall, the analysis shows that 49 percent of global organisations lack confidence in tracking sustainability metrics to reduce emissions and fuel consumption.
