MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan's Global Director of Commercial Vehicle Research Sandeep Kar for the Automotive & Transportation team will present at EyeforTransport's Chief Supply Chain Officer Forum, co-located with the North American 3PL Summit on June 18 to 20, 2013 at the Radisson Blu Aqua in Chicago, Ill.
Frost & Sullivan analysts will speak on the latest Global Mega Trends and Implications to Urban Logistics during their respective presentations. These Mega Trends include: Urbanization, Bricks and Clicks, and Access to Multimodality, Connectivity and Convergence, and Future Infrastructure Development, which are all expected to drive demand for time-sensitive deliveries.
"Urban logistics is already bringing about noticeable changes in commercial vehicle design, development and preferences. Trucks are cubing out before weighing out, telematics and connectivity are becoming more ubiquitous, time and mission critical deliveries are on the rise," said Frost & Sullivan Global Director of Commercial Vehicle Research Sandeep Kar. "Moreover, we see a world where 60 percent of the global population will be living in urban centers by 2025, demanding unique value propositions such as same day service. I am looking forward to sharing our megatrends research in this area, and also hearing from fellow panelists how their businesses are catalyzing this change."
In the upcoming North America event, Kar will present and lead the session "Unlocking the Potential of Omni Channel Retail and Home Delivery," held on the second day of the event. Other presenters during this session include representatives from Home Depot, Sears and Office Depot.
"Global spending on urban logistics is expected to grow rapidly from $2.5 trillion in 2011 to nearly $6 trillion by 2020 driven by B2C ecommerce growth, rapid urbanization, and investment in sophisticated technology for better optimization," said Frost & Sullivan Program Manager Archana Amarnath. "This market opportunity has already attracted many logistics service providers who are introducing innovative business models in urban distribution and last mile operations such as urban consolidation centers, self-collection locker boxes, same-day deliveries, and click and collect."
