The steady growth and expansion of IoT in last mile delivery was put to the test in face of the current Covid-19 pandemic. As demand in goods exploded all over the world, last mile companies were under enormous pressure to optimise delivery routes and processes with near real time updates and monitoring.
As the final stretch in the IoT data chain, companies that were not optimised in last mile delivery tracking devices and logistics found it difficult to keep up. In particular, a lack of clarity on customer needs and demands posed one of the biggest bottlenecks for both shippers and solution providers in their day-to-day operations.
This series takes on a conversational approach with sharing sessions from the perspectives of (1) Applications of technology solutions in last mile fulfillment in a Covid-safe world and (2) The role of Fulfillment as a Service in changing landscapes, before opening up to a conversation surrounding IoT costs and value to your business.
