15 SEPTEMBER 2021 10:00 – 11:00

Last mile fulfilment already the driver of a fundamental realignment of the way we shop, has been turbo-charged by the covid lockdown. This trend butts up against a rising policy drive to address pollution in our cities, to restrict and reshape urban logistics. The cold chain is at the forefront of both these trends. 

In this session we talk about how businesses can manage these risks and harness these opportunities.

  • Is electrification of vehicles the answer, what about other fuels?
  • Is our supply chain changing fast enough to meet policy objectives?
  • Where is the right balance between regulation incentives and can industry and governments work together?
