E-Commerce Logistics Is Changing Cities

With the Internet and rise of e-commerce, consumer expectations from technology have transformed into an on-demand economy, creating more demand and urgency. Charles shared his views on the importance of digital infrastructure, which includes the physical infrastructure. He offered the students comprehensive learning experience and an opportunity to understand what it means for a delivery company to be a part of this fast-paced changing landscape. He shed light on the concept of “customer expectations” in line with “last mile delivery” in developed and developing nations. Charles also emphasized the importance of cross-border e-Commerce enabling the access of new markets with minimum investments.

It was an informative session for SPJ students that bridged the gap between their theoretical learnings and the industry experience.
