PUDOs and lockers:
The new power in the last mile
Is peak capacity keeping you up at night? Is your on time delivery below par? PUDO (pick up drop off) and parcel locker networks are the new power behind first-time e-commerce parcel delivery and may be the panacea for many last mile issues.
Following our highly successful “Understanding Amazon” seminar at last year’s Parcel+Post Expo, this year Marek Różycki draws upon his experience setting up PUDO and locker networks to give you the definitive guide to creating a first-class out of home delivery network. Posts can strengthen their existing networks and market position, parcel carriers can create a physical footprint and increase capacity, and e-commerce companies can gain new advantage in the last mile.
We’ll be talking about out of home and unattended delivery issues including:
Setting up PUDOs and parcel locker networks
Transforming existing networks into high performance customer centric delivery systems
The latest developments in parcel locker technology
Carrier-specific vs carrier-agnostic
Other unattended delivery modes
The quest for better first-time delivery
The interactive seminar will be followed by a hands-on workshop. To take part in the workshop, you must pre-register using the form below. The seminar and workshop are free to Parcel+Post Expo delegates.
Testimonials for Ian and Marek’s Amazon seminar
Anton Steinberger, Head of Delivery Experience, zooplus AG: “This workshop was a real plus for me: Not only were there two top professionals, talking about a company they showed to know extremely well, but the content was transferred with high level technical equipment and in a way that kept you interested throughout the session. Both of them having a great sense of humour added to the value, so I could attend the workshop and take away a lot of learnings, while having a great time as well. I highly appreciated this workshop and can recommend it to anyone in the e-commerce world.”
