What You Will Learn

Companies are turning to swifter alternatives to the traditional supply chain to remain competitive in a world where customers demand quicker and quicker delivery – not just same-day, but within hours of clicking “order”. This session will focus on the characteristics and operations of last mile / urban fulfillment centers and the opportunities for practitioners and suppliers alike.

Key Takeaways

1. Speed Matters – Better understand challenges of the traditional supply chain structure has in meeting today’s 2 hour “prime delivery” model and how it’s evolving to meet the needs of customers / consumers
2. Anticipate the Requirements – What are companies doing to meet customer demands for quicker delivery?
3. Reduce the Distance - What does a “last Mile / urban distribution center” look like and what are developers doing to meet the demand for these facilities?
4. Remain Flexible - How does a ‘Last Mile facility’ operation differ from a regular distribution center?
