Description

Join us as we take a look into the future of logistics in Southeast Asia!

Logistics is the common thread underlying every single commerce activity. Yet, innovation in this field has historically been de-prioritised or, worse, overlooked. This is a particularly important problem for Southeast Asia, where the fragmented landscape poses a barrier to efficient logistics systems.

Today, logistics innovation is experiencing a revival in our fast-moving, hyper-connected Southeast Asian economy. With changing business needs and consumer expectations, there is an increasing emphasis on efficiency, convenience, traceability and automation in logistics.

This need for innovation allows startups to enter the logistics industry, which was traditionally the domain of only large companies. A level playing field like this creates opportunities for startups and large companies to collaborate and solve some of the biggest challenges in logistics today.

We are excited to explore a new era of logistics innovation and answer key questions like:

  • What are the biggest trends driving logistics innovation?

  • What are the logistics challenges faced by companies like Unilever, Kuehne + Nagel, Bolloré Logistics and Lazada?

  • How can startups, enterprises and VCs collaborate to solve these challenges?

Come join some of the biggest names in logistics today for a glimpse into the future of logistics...as we move from Boxes to Pixels.
