Final Mile Services

Helping you solve the final mile

final mile delivery

We work with our customers to solve their toughest final mile challenges. We have the warehouse space (300,000 square feet across Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and Austin), know-how, and dependable group of two-man teams with lift-gate-equipped trucks to deliver from our warehouses to the home.  We have invested in technology to improve scheduling, transparency, and communication across the value chain, from the 3PL, FTL / LTL, large retailer, etc. all the way to the consignee.  We also work with our customers to understand and execute to their standard operating procedures, ensuring a high-quality delivery experience.

Hot Shot Final Mile has the scale and expertise to be your one-stop shop for final mile services in Texas

3 Levels of Service

E-commerce is driving unprecedented growth in final mile delivery and has introduced challenges throughout the logistics value chain. Consumers expect speed and exceptional customer experience.  At Hot Shot Final Mile, we deliver on both of these and have earned the trust of our customers (e.g., 3PLs, LTLs, FTLs, retailers) as a result.  Speed is a constant for all consumers.  Customer experience, on the other hand, varies by consumer.  Some want the ultimate in convenience – deliver, setup, and haul away the old.  Others are Do It Yourselfers (DIYs) and only want a new sofa, television, or swing set delivered to their front curb.  Still, others are in between – they want the security of a delivery into their home, but don’t have the time to wait for unpacking, setup, etc. Recognizing this, we offer three service levels, so your customers receive a best-in-class experience every time.

White Glove

This is full-service delivery and includes scheduled appointments, unboxing, setup of delivery items, and disposing of packing materials. We can even haul away the old furniture, television, etc. that they just replaced.  This service is the ultimate in convenience.

Threshold

This service is for those consumers who want deliveries into their home, but prefer to do the setup and disposal themselves. We will deliver the purchased item into the home through the front door.  Our Delivery Professionals have the right equipment (e.g., bobtails with liftgates, dollies) and experience to ensure deliveries are made with tremendous care.

Outside

Finally, this service is for the Do It Yourselfers. We will safely deliver the item from our warehouse to the consignee’s front door, outside the home.
