    Trucking V: Connecting the Middle and Last Mile

    Retailers are expanding last-mile options based on speed and location. But, to provide such options, linking the middle mile to the last mile is critical. Visibility into the middle mile is necessary for retailers to quickly position the right inventory to the right warehouse or fulfillment location in order to meet customer’s expectations. Retailers are optimizing their networks to address faster fulfillment and last-mile requirements and are also implementing technology to understand and utilize data to better position inventories closer to customers. Among the key takeaways in this session will be understanding the relationship between the middle and the last mile, what types of technologies are needed to achieve success, and what success looks like.
