B2C e-commerce has put forward higher requirements on the ability of logistics distribution, in which the last-mile delivery quality plays a significant role. Recently, the introduction of intelligent terminals generates a new last-mile delivery mode. Centered with the service quality of this new mode, this paper firstly analyzes the features of the new last-mile delivery mode with intelligent terminals as the carrier, then identifies the dimensions of service quality in this context, and thirdly analyzes the relationships among features of the new last-mile delivery mode, service quality, trust in the service provider, and customer satisfaction toward the last-mile distribution service.
