Decarbonizing the last mile of delivery

Demand for global e-commerce is soaring as we order more online – from clothes to groceries – while expecting our deliveries to arrive faster than ever. Meanwhile, consumers increasingly want their packages to arrive at little cost to the environment. This explosive growth in online shopping is adding convenience to our lives but leading to a multitude of challenges for companies trying to keep pace with the demand, including dramatic increases in greenhouse gas emissions and congestion. This session will provide thought-provoking discussion on the trends shaping the future of e-commerce, and innovative solutions designed to tackle these challenges head-on.
