Apr 19 - 19 2016

Logistics day Conference

E-Commerce is a fast rising Trend, thanks not only to the Internet but also helped by the efficiency and success of specialized transport services and e-retail companies like Amazon growing by 15% per year. In order to support Luxembourg’s growth in this field, the Logistics Day Conference 2016 on April 19th was dedicated to "Crossborder E-Commerce and Logistics". Over 100 visitors took part again in the event listening to an exciting keynote speaker. The president of the Cluster for Logistics, Carlo Thelen, welcomed the participants and gave an overview of the needs of the sector.

Like the forerunners in online platforms, the national logistics sector is also looking forward to offer new services. However, this niche suffers from the difficulty to obtain competitive cross-border prices and needs more diverse services according to claims from the federation on e-commerce E-com.lu. The conference made it clear that it will take a higher amount of collaboration in order to create a win-win situation for both sectors. But then they can profit from each other, grow together and address last mile efficiency. 

The Logistics Community joined the Logistics Day Conference held on April 19th 2016 at the Chamber of Commerce. The Subject of this year's conference revolved around "E-commerce and Logistics".
