  • Efficiency of multi-parcel drops
  • Example from InPost of how many parcels one driver can deliver
  • Impact of illness on staffing in sorting centres
  • Local fulfilment of orders
  • Physical limitations of residential delivery
  • Challenge to hire quality drivers for last mile delivery
  • Giving customers visibility and control over their deliveries
