Safer, cleaner last-mile delivery through data alliances

The pandemic has changed the face of last-mile logistics. Consumers now buy more online than ever before – and it’s putting fresh pressure on all players in the delivery game.

How can carriers find more efficient and greener ways to meet the boom in demand? How can cities accommodate increased transport needs? How can tech providers bring innovative solutions to market faster?

There is a way to make the last mile more efficient, sustainable and safe – but only if we all unite to share data and fuel greater cross-industry collaboration.

Join us for an inspiring webinar, hosted in collaboration with Simacan, where we bring together experts from industry and academia to explore the latest last-mile trends, innovations and market developments. You’ll discover how to overcome delivery and logistics challenges by leveraging data from across the ecosystem, in ways that work for everyone.
