EDX 2015: Retail Delivery focus


25 and 26 March see the first ever eDelivery Expo (EDX 2015) kick off at the Birmingham NEC.
Over the next two months, we’ll be running a series of updates and items on EDX, featuring some of the eight conferences, 16 workshops, 20 expert eCommerce clinics, and more than 150 speakers from the retail sector. We think EDX 2015 will be the must-visit event of the year for multichannel logistics and operations professionals, and we would love to see you there.

Day One will of EDX 2015 will be themed Retail Delivery.

The emergence of the ‘anytime-anywhere’ consumer has precipitated a growing demand for speedier online delivery and an array of more flexible customer options. Delivery and fulfillment are quickly becoming the point of differentiation for retailers vying to cash in on the growing commercial opportunities brought about by the rapid increase in online shopping.

Retail Delivery will examine how retailers are managing the strategic and day-to-day operational challenges associated with new customer demands: What are the key logistical issues are impacting successful home delivery, click and collect, ship from store and locker collection? What are the implementation costs and challenges associated with various models? How can retailers win on both timing and profit margins?
