The pandemic exploded e-commerce and absorbed every inch of existing delivery capacity, forcing every last-mile delivery player to rethink their strategy.

The deluge of packages brought about strong reactions from incumbent players. New UPS CEO Carol Tomé decided to focus on margin proclaiming a “better, not bigger” philosophy. FedEx has seen a downturn in delivery performance while executives claim they’re trying to pick up the slack. And USPS is intentionally slowing down service to save on cost and up reliability.

Over the last 18 months, energy, talent, and investor dollars have flooded into the delivery sector where new entrants are reimagining how packages are delivered and challenging entrenched incumbents.

Please join our senior reporter Emma Cosgrove and execs from ShipHero, the Frontdoor Collective, and Playground Global for a conversation about the future of e-commerce logistics and how innovators are rethinking the last mile.

The hour-long chat is scheduled for November 10 at 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT).

Meet our panelists:

  • Penelope Register-Shaw is the Chief Strategy Officer of The Frontdoor Collective
  • Aaron Rubin is CEO of ShipHero
  • Victoria Sun is a Principal at Playground Global

Topics to be discussed include:

  • New entrants in last-mile delivery
  • Why are e-commerce companies looking for alternatives to FedEx, UPS, and USPS
  • How M&A in the space will change the dynamics on the ground
  • How the holiday shipping season is looking so far in terms of delivery capacity
  • What smart companies are doing to make sure they get enough fast delivery capacity
  • How fast is fast enough?

The experts will also be taking audience questions live.
