Retail delivery has really been put into the spotlight over the past 12 months. Delivery drivers were identified as key workers, keeping households in essential goods as lockdowns meant people could not physically go shopping. Unexpected peaks in demand for certain verticals, as well as a wholesale shift from store to online has put unexpected pressure on supply chains, inventory, demand forecasting and delivery.
Solution providers are pivoting applications of their technologies to support retailers as they had to very swiftly adapt to the changing behaviours and needs of their customers. The global pandemic will change the world forever. But what will this mean for retail? Are there longer term scenarios that you are basing your planning on? What do other people think the retail landscape will look like as the world moves out of lockdown?
Over the course of three days, in bite-sized and curated pieces, members will participate in Digital Roundtable discussions, curated 1-1 “meetings” with peers, on-demand stories from some of the members, and on-tap help from the partners making it all work for you.
The discussions and content will be shaped by participants and everyone is invited to throw a question or two into the mix, topics covered across the three days will be:
