LinkedIn +

How fast is too fast? With growing scrutiny of delivery companies’ emissions, why would Amazon send something by air that could easily have taken an overland route? Ian Kerr (Postal Hub Podcast) and Marek Różycki (Last Mile Experts) discuss:

  • Amazon’s target of net carbon zero
  • Is early delivery actually a delivery failure?
  • Should Amazon advise customers when a parcel is being delivered ahead of time?
  • How much interactive delivery management (IDM) does Amazon really offer?
  • Amazon delivering by cargo bikes
  • FBA vs buying from Amazon, and the implications on shipping speed
  • Brexit and customs borders
  • Customers demanding more information on the environmental impact of their deliveries and delivery options
