CILT South Yorkshire Annual Seminar: Get it out! Get it back! – Challenges of Last Mile Delivery

Sheffield University Management School is proud to host the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) Annual Seminar.


“Consumers are purchasing more and more products online. They want them delivered to locations convenient for them, which might be the home, the workplace or the local shop. If they decide they don’t want the item, it then has to be returned through the reverse logistics network”.

This year’s seminar will look at the challenges currently being faced by the industry in terms of ‘last mile delivery’. Three of the industry’s leading players will discuss the day to day trials of delivering retailer’s promises, and getting the products back in an efficient and cost effective manner.


Matthew Jacques, Strategic Partnerships Director at Collect+
