    on Apr 7, 20 • in UK News • with Comments Off on Overcoming three challenges to delivery efficiency during unprecedented times

    The current Coronavirus pandemic has presented challenges for every industry, organisation and individual across the world. In particular, the increased pressures that have been placed on ensuring efficient deliveries; to stores and to homes – have never been experienced before.

So what are the main pinch points for

  • Achieving an end to end frictionless retail experience

    on Feb 4, 20 • in UK News • with Comments Off on Achieving an end to end frictionless retail experience

    Retailers are pushing hard to achieve a ‘frictionless’ customer experience – but in too many cases, the emphasis is on the initial interaction with the rest of the experience woefully inadequate. What is the point of embracing seamless click-through options on Pinterest or Facebook, when the delivery experience is flawed?

  • How to make international ecommerce transparent

    on Feb 19, 19 • in UK News • with Comments Off on How to make international ecommerce transparent

    Cross-border ecommerce provides organisations with, theoretically, a low-cost opportunity to break into new markets.

    on Feb 13, 19 • in General News, UK News • with Comments Off on 5 Key Logistics Trends and Technology Implications for 2019

    2018 can certainly be summarised as a turbulent year in logistics and transportation management.
