So Fresh, So Fast: Why Meal Kit Services Deliver with Bond

Published on: April 20, 2020

The recent surge in demand for meal kits has forced industry players to rethink their logistics operations – last-mile delivery in particular. While the last mile is a hurdle for all direct to consumer brands, delivering meal kits and food supplies is significantly more challenging than delivering clothing, books, or any non-perishable item.

Meal kit makers that can optimize supply chains to reduce costs and maximize operational efficiency will emerge profitably. Given that last-mile delivery is expensive, highly complex, and almost always under the control of a third party, it’s the perfect place to start optimizing operations.

Here’s why meal kits services are ditching larger third party logistics providers (3PLs) to deliver with Bond:

Reduced Delivery Cost Per Unit

Meal kit makers spend about 30% on last-mile delivery through traditional means with their 3PLs and distributors. To top that off, most 3PLs take up to 72 hours to get meals to customers, and require pricey packagings like disposable freezer packs and dry ice. Bond offers same-day delivery, so there’s no need for special packaging or ice packs. In less than 24 hours, your customers will receive their meal kits right to their door. Super fresh, for way less!
