Delivery Logistics Industry
Thought and Leadership
Next month I'll be attending and presenting at the LogTech conference in Singapore. As I prepare my talk, I felt like it might be a good opportunity to share some of it with the Bringg audience. Given the theme of the forum, Logistics Technology, I felt I could provide value by highlighting how businesses can enrich the local delivery experience by using this kind of technology.
If there is any company that is a model of efficiency, especially when it comes to deliveries, it is Amazon. It's one of it's competitive advantages - when you order from Amazon, you can be sure the package will arrive on time. However, there is one notable exception that served as a wake up call to the entire industry.
In 1991 catalog industry veteran Don Libey went on stage at the annual Catalog Conference and claimed that the country is heading towards same-day delivery models. Many seasoned catalog executives in the audience laughed. Today, retail giants like Amazon.com, Google, eBay and Wal-Mart are making same-day delivery a reality.
