How Last-Mile Delivery is Impacting Vehicle Design and Fleet Mission

Wednesday, March 7, 9:30–10:45 a.m.

The evolution of technology is dynamically redesigning information management, speed of accurate decision-making and how the work itself is completed. One striking example is in package delivery: often, the last-mile delivery to an increasingly time-sensitive consumer is the most expensive and cumbersome portion of meeting heightened customer expectations. Hear how Amazon and UPS, two leaders facilitating the evolution of online ordering, are planning to meet this challenge with redesigned trucks, packaging and delivery methods to improve their last-mile delivery experience — all while improving customer satisfaction and reducing expenses.
