CILT Eastern Section in conjunction with Linkline Journal are delighted to announce a half day event on Friday 21 February dedicated to exploring the challenges and opportunities of the rapidly changing landscape of last mile, with an emphasis on technology and innovation.
As consumers increasingly go online for ALL of their shopping needs, speedy fulfillment is now the normal expectation of every online shopping experience. For logistics and supply chain companies and their retail partners it is one of the big challenges they face as they come under increasing pressure to reduce the cost of last mile delivery and the associated carbon footprint the current system generates.
Vendors and their transport partners are increasingly exploring new technologies and experimental supply chain models to increase parcel volume, make deliveries more efficient, keep customers happy - all while trying to cut costs.
