The IPC Annual Conference 2017 will explore the options posts have to cost-effectively deliver light-weight, low-value packets which account for the majority of the cross-border e-commerce market.
The debate will be focused on the following topics:
- How can postal networks be re-engineered to deliver the exponential growth of low-value packets from Asia?
- With more than half of the global middle-class population predicted to be in Asia by 2020, are posts ready to handle the corresponding growth in traffic to and from Asia?
- With smartphones the main driver of e-commerce especially among millennials, how can posts respond to increased consumer demand for convenience and mobility?
- With consumer delivery expectations increasing based on experiences with global e-retail platforms, how can posts meet consumer and e-retailer demands for low-cost, reliable and visible delivery of parcels?
To generate debate, keynote speakers from Alibaba and Amazon will share their views on e-commerce trends and challenges and how posts can respond to their customers’ needs.
In support of the conference, delegates will be able to visit a small exhibition area highlighting IPC solutions for cross-border e-commerce.
The IPC Annual Conference is upon invitation only.
