Retail Logistics

Retail Knowledge Bank

How can retailers minimise the environmental footprint of packaging and delivery? What do customers want and need in the last-mile? And how can this customer experience be improved to increase competitiveness? And what about returns? What role do third-party logistics providers play in retail supply chain operations? And what about automation? How will that change retail logistics in the future?

These questions and more are addressed in a number of retail projects related to retail logistics at the Centre for Retail Research. Learn more in the articles, webinars, and blog posts on this page.
