E-Commerce, Online Shopping and Delivering in the Digital Age

Please note the room has been changed to the Tianshan & Lushan Room on Level 5, the venue location remains the same. 

Asia has one of the fastest growing e-commerce markets, with the region's consumers among the most digital savvy in the world. This exponential growth in online shopping means increased connectivity for all, but those market gains are still held back by onerous customs regulations and inefficient supply chain infrastructure in many emerging markets in Asia. How has the market disruption that is e-commerce today changed business strategy for the express and logistics industry? And how can international air express disrupt its own business model to provide innovative services, boost cross-border facilitation of goods and ensure speedy and efficient 'last mile' delivery?

Karen Reddington, President, FedEx Express Asia Pacific, will look at disruption in this brave new delivery world, how traditional shippers are rising to a new set of challenges, and why a positive customer experience still remains a key differentiator in the highly competitive market.
