“Gartner Hype Cycles provide a graphic representation of the maturity and adoption of technologies and applications, and how they are potentially relevant to solving real business problems and exploiting new opportunities,” notes the Gartner Hype Cycle Research Methodology. The reports identify last-mile delivery solutions under the Slope of Enlightenment Curve in its Hype Cycle Phases, which we believe reflects the growing relevance and value provided by these innovations to businesses, consumers, and Smart City development.
According to the 2022 Gartner Hype Cycle for Smart City Technologies and Solutions, “Trends in analytics at the service delivery point, decarbonization, last-mile logistics, mobility, and building options are opening the door for an experience delivered at the edge of the service delivery network, thus calling for 5G and broadband rollouts.”
“To keep up with the ever-increasing demand for faster deliveries and staggering growth in order volumes, businesses across e-commerce, retail, 3PLs or home service, etc. need intelligent and real-world ready platforms that not just provide visibility in Last-Mile fulfillment, but also enable better decision-making for unparalleled customer experience,” says Nishith Rastogi, Founder and CEO of Locus. “Locus’ dispatch management platform helps make every delivery more efficient than the last, which results in fewer miles traveled, and more deliveries being done in a day.
