10:00-11:30 Session 15A: E-Commerce

The growth of e-commerce has led to an increasing number of deliveries to cities. In the past years, the number of parcels, web shops, parcel carriers, delivery vehicles and delivery options provided to consumers are increased. Consumers like fast and customized deliveries. In order to win customers, web shops use logistics as a marketing tool. New delivery initiatives follow each other in quick succession. Parcels are delivered where and when the customer wants it. Because of this customization, it is a challenge for e-fulfillment parties to use resources efficiently. Collaboration and coordination become essential. For example, an open network of parcel lockers is an ideal opportunity to optimize the usage of the lockers. In this session, some of these new initiatives will be explained and discussed from an industry and academic perspective.

Which new arrangements are needed between private and public institutions to allow the PI to function effectively? The panelists provide introductions to the topic of governance from the perspectives of the legal and commercial constraints to collaboration, the management of safety and security risks, changes in global logistics service networks (forwarders and maritime carriers) and the technical and organisational challenges of data exchange (new information platforms). During the discussion with the audience we will aim to identify critical issues for governance of the PI.
