About the Webinar

Last-mile logistics complexities are evolving at lightning speed as organizations grapple with booming demand and fluctuating consumer behavior. Existing systems cannot keep up with newer fulfillment models and shorter delivery windows are being introduced almost overnight. As visibility, resilience, and usability take center stage, organizations have had to evaluate their existing tech stack.

As a result, businesses are ramping up their tech infrastructure investments. With global spending for digital transformation initiatives expected to reach $2.8 trillion by 2025, it is clear that IT teams are becoming huge cost centers for enterprises.

As businesses look to align their logistics fulfillment models with the best industry practices to manage escalations and ensure on-time deliveries, it raises a bigger question — should companies build from scratch or invest in a last-mile logistics solution?

Walter Heil, SVP - Developed Markets, Locus, will be delving into this in our latest episode of In Focus, a series of webinars where logistics and supply chain experts from Locus and brands around the world share expert opinions and actionable insights on how to make the last mile your differentiator among brands.
