Last-mile delivery has long been a critical area of focus for Omni-channel retailers, logistics and supply chain professionals, and the pandemic has quickened a number of important trends in the industry. The current pandemic has pushed many retailers to sustain sales online when most physical stores have been forced to close. “Keeping the current situation in mind, we have designed the agenda of LMA 2020 to understand the impact of this pandemic and its significant changes to the way that last-mile delivery and fulfillment is managed in the 'NEW NORMAL’”, said Anuj Mathur, Managing Director - Manch Exhibitions (Thailand) Co.

Last Mile ASEAN will feature exhibitors covering the entire value chain of last mile i.e. from fulfillment/ Distribution Centre Solutions, Sustainable Packaging, Electric Vehicles and Last Mile Delivery Service & Solution Providers. The Conference aims to address various topics under the Theme “Strategies to Adapt your Last Mile Delivery and Fulfillment to the New Normal (Post Covid World)”:
- Takeaways from the recent Pandemic and how to transform your logistics for retail and e-Commerce and improve the Last Mile Supply Chain to enable businesses (online retail; e-Commerce; Post, Parcel and logistics companies) to overcome another global or regional situation
