Logistics Manager sister title Citti is to host a free-to-attend webinar – sponsored by Wincanton – on Thursday 9 July at 10.30am looking at how retailers, consumers and cities can adapt to the rise in e-commerce and the changing demands of consumer behaviour.
There are many pressures on the modern logistics world, be that financial, environmental or driven by the changing demands of consumers – and these challenges are further increased in the hustle and bustle of city and urban landscapes.
This webinar will bring transport and logistics professionals up-to-speed on what is required for organisations to survive and thrive in the years ahead.
By attending this webinar you will learn:
– How collaboration can help reduce the impact of logistics in cities
– How consolidation can bring real benefits
– How retailers and carriers are developing local solutions to successfully manage inventory and delivery processes
