With over 600 million more people forecast to live in urban environments by 2030 and new technologies creating opportunities for both service enhancement and disruption, online retailers and their last-mile logistics partners are being challenged to embrace bold new approaches to survive and compete.
Alongside the increasing complexities of satisfying more urbanized communities, demand from the modern-day consumer has also intensified. Customers don't only expect speed and efficiency, they also call for sustainable logistics and eco-friendly packaging methods, making an all-pleasing last mile delivery solution in 2019 very difficult to achieve.
