In this roundtable, we will discuss the impact of how do customer expectations for same-day delivery and seamless shopping impact B2C logistics structures of the future.

With the connection of bricks-and-mortar shopping with online shopping, retailers and producers need to come up with new innovative network and distribution concepts. This requires to integrate warehousing and inventory systems, but goes along with higher process complexities. This is further amplified with the upcoming need to fulfil customer orders in shorter lead time and sometimes on the same-day. To guarantee same-day deliveries, retailers need to set up more decentralized warehouse systems to be closer to the customers.

Goodyear invites us to a plant tour after the roundtable.

The Digital Supply Chain Roundtable Series

Organisations increasingly recognise the importance of supply chain management — the success of which relies on the efficiency and effectiveness of their processes, the quality and availability of information, and the interaction with other members of the supply chain. Digitisation, Industry 4.0, and Blockchains are among the emerging technologies that bear the potential of critically affecting these factors. In this series of roundtables, we will discuss, share, and outline ideas, strategies, experiences as well as research relating to the forthcoming transformational technologies.

The Digital Supply Chain Roundtable Series provides a place where our supply chain community can regularly come together to hear about new discoveries, techniques and ideas.

The roundtables encourage discussion and interaction between supply chain professionals and University of Luxembourg students and faculty. They address issues and topics relevant to the industry and leading professionals. They also expose supply chain professionals to industry research conducted at the University and elsewhere. The key aim of the series is to allow its participants to collaborate, sharing business ideas and skill sets to strengthen their businesses together.

The roundtables are of particular interest to the professionals in the logistics and supply chain community.

Registration is limited to 15 participants.
