E-commerce has become an important part of commercial trade in the 21st century. Businesses and consumers rely upon an efficient and effective transportation and logistics system to receive purchased goods. Last mile delivery — getting packages to the final destination — is the most complex part of the goods movement cycle. Both businesses and governments are working to understand the impacts, and costs, of last mile delivery. Improving efficiency, reducing cost and minimizing negative impacts are all important factors being considered. In this virtual event, regional experts and leaders will decipher the inner workings of the last mile from a holistic point of view — meeting the needs of business, government and consumers.

Following the presentations, attendees will engage in a discussion with an opportunity to share concerns and ideas with panelists, transportation professionals, policy makers, students and each other.

This dialogue, to be held on Tuesday, June 28, 2022, from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m., will be held virtually. A link to the live videoconference will be provided upon registration. Attendees can register free of charge. Attendance is limited to the first 50 registrants, and pre-registration is required.
