Last Mile is So Last Year: Here's How to Reach The Future Retail Consumer
Last-mile has become a term synonymous with home delivery of consumer orders. But as requirements for receiving orders evolve in complexity and variety, current last-mile operations will become outdated and ineffective. This webinar will show how new models, using urban, suburban and rural strategies for order collection or delivery, and multi-retailer consolidation networks will change how retailers get products into the hands of consumers.

Participants will learn how to:
1. Alter their definition of last mile away from just delivery by also including collection options.
2. Embrace the innovative ways in which consumers and products can come together
3. Build into their future last-mile plans, the concepts of consolidation, collaboration and environmental sustainability.
