Industry Panel Briefing

About the Event

With the large successes of e-commerce behemoth Amazon, e-commerce has transformed the marketplace and the way consumers view transactions. This new period of virtual service has given consumers the advantage of access to more products than ever before. The transport and logistics industry has evolved and adapted alongside the trends in e-commerce. Innovations in the industry have ushered in a new era of technology to promote efficiency, safety and security whilst remaining conscientious of environmental impact. As the e-commerce world is rapidly changing, being able to stay competitive and proactive as trends evolve will separate industry leaders in the years to come.

The rapid and widespread diffusion of e-commerce makes the transport and logistics industry more relevant than ever before for businesses and consumers alike.

Join AmCham as we discuss the advancements and ramifications of:
- How Transportation Management is using innovation to optimise over shorter distances and the issue of being environmentally conscious without compromising service and efficiency.
