Gridlock! Can Urban Logistics Escape It?

All hail the omni-channel. But how can logistics providers possibly keep pace with an explosion in the number of delivery points within a city that must be served?

Gridlock! Can Urban Logistics Escape It?

Bob Farrell, president and chief executive officer of Kewill, has an innovative proposal. He’d like to see the construction of shared logistics centers, occupied by multiple service providers, feeding shipments into retail stores and private homes located deep within urban centers. It’s one way to combat the gridlock that can only get worse as cities continue to grow, and consumers demand same-day delivery to the doorstep. Listen to Farrell’s idea about how we can combat a problem that gets “worse and worse, day by day.” Hosted by Bob Bowman, Managing Editor of SupplyChainBrain.
