Delivery Trends Favor Logistics When Dealing with Congested Areas Like St. Paul, MN

While there’s plenty of talk these days about remotely controlling platoons of driverless trucks and doing a better job of competing with rail, there’s no substitute for the way Strategic Transportation uses logistics for delivery in St. Paul, MN and other parts of the region.

In this growing age of e-commerce, the trend is toward smaller packages. This quite naturally favors trucking over rail, especially when delivering in a metro area. Just how much will the demand for parcel deliveries increase over the next decade? Some predict it could be double or triple what we’re used to today.

That’s not good when you figure highway congestion is expected to rise sharply over the next 25 years. More dedicated funding is required to pay for highway expansions and repairs. Whether that will be achieved through higher fuel taxes or other user fees is anyone’s guess.

Will what’s known as ride sharing also include a version of package delivery in the future? It’s not clear that alternative or autonomous cars will really offer a reliable solution, and experts believe it just might make the anticipated traffic hassles even worse. Regardless of how trends change, Strategic Transportation is ready with our logistics services.
