Deliver with Purpose

Why delivery?

The importance of last mile delivery is the most crucial step in the supply chain, as the shipment is completed once the goods are delivered. It also presents a significant challenge to make e-commerce greener, cleaner and better for the environment. We need e-commerce to be more Earth-friendly: “we need to reinforce delivery with sustainability.” Ecommerce needs to drive a sustainable model and, therefore, needs to change along with consumer habits. Purpose-driven supply chains are a major shift that does not simply involve introducing new technology or logistics disruption; it calls for a radical rethinking of how we do business and how our public and private organizations function and are shaped. Deliver with Purpose includes real (and not distorted) total costs and returns with a local capital flow to both communities and planet. Sustainability is a macro-economic concept rooted in long-terms goals, for health and survival, that need to be systemically rooted into the micro-economies of internet commerce. The reinvention of delivery moves us all in the age of ecommerce, changing retail and customer expectations. Deliver with Purpose is the next big customer channel transformation and strategy driven by same-day delivery expansion platforms and partnerships.
