Innovation and transformation in the final stage of e-commerce fulfilment
2 July 2020 | Stamford Bridge, London
Leaders in Logistics: Last Mile Delivery, is a one day event dedicated to exploring the challenges and opportunities of the rapidly changing landscape of last mile, with an emphasis on technology and innovation.
On 27 June 2019 at Stamford Bridge, London, we brought together key industry stakeholders: innovative logistics and postal operators, exciting delivery start-ups, solutions providers and retailers for a fantastic day filled with strategic discussions and forward-looking debate.
A model that delivers
Retailers and logistic operators including DPD, DHL, Doddle, Bpost, Avon, Waitrose and eBay determined how you can build dynamic control over your last mile, to ensure consumer retention and a streamlined process.
Transport for London, Hermes, Stuart, Quiqup and PostNord shared detailed examples of innovation in the last mile, and attendees learned how to adapt these solutions to revolutionise the final leg of their distribution process.
The Big-3 Challenge
We learned how Amazon works from a former Amazon insider, engaged in discussions on how to compete with the most successful e-commerce players with CitySprint and Swiss Post and discovered if emulation can boost your last mile.
The Drive To Collaborate
Parcelly has driven collaboration to survive in the modern world of logistics. Attendees heard how collaboration provides the opportunities for growth, whilst easing pressure on profit margins, and learned how to adapt to cities that are ever-more concerned about the environmental impact of delivery vehicles.
With dedicated discussions on how technology can offer new solutions, we heard real-life examples from Whistl, Omniva, Posten Norge and UPS on how autonomous robots, proactive tracking and warehousing can revolutionise your service.
We hosted roundtables, a brainstorm session, panel discussions, interactive seminars and lightning pitches, giving untold opportunities for attendees to engage with peers and discover how they can develop their own delivery solutions.
