During this global pandemic, the e-commerce sector experienced a huge boost. This increase in digital commerce relies on strong logistics players, who also optimized their processes to handle the surge in online orders in a timely manner. Without them, the e-commerce sector would not have been able to make the most of this opportunity that this crisis has brought. The importance of the logistics sector for e-commerce cannot be underestimated, which is why BeCommerce and Bpost are holding this 8th edition of the BeCommerce Logistics Summit: The future of The Last Mile by Bpost on June 17, 2021.
