On 25 and 26 March the first ever eDelivery Expo (EDX 2015) takes place at the Birmingham NEC.
Between now and then, 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 Two will of EDX 2015 will be themed Retail Logistics.
Intense migration to online shopping is forcing retailers to restructure internal operations and relationships with customers and suppliers in order to achieve supply chain effectiveness.
Retail Logistics will examine how the rapid growth of online retail is impacting traditional infrastructures revealing new approaches for achieving efficiency, responsiveness and agility.
This is an opportunity to hear how leading retailers are getting to grips with new technologies and operational strategies designed to meet new customer demands and, by doing so, creating fit-for-future retail supply chains.
Key topics will include: omni-channel, international growth and delivery, big data, sourcing, returns management and supplier collaboration.
