On July 10th, International Bridge CEO and WILDS Chair, Mrs. Shoshana Grove introduced guest speakers, Kriti Vichare, Director Innovation, United States Postal Service, and Brody Buhler, Direct Global Managing Director, Post and Parcel Industry, Accenture.
Approximately 80 attendees participated in the webinar where the speakers offered insights on how the pandemic and the related confinement measures have changed consumer behavior and market dynamics. Additionally, participants and speakers shared the challenges and opportunities that the pandemic has created for the logistic sector and discussed new USPS initiatives driven by new trends that are likely to become the new normal.
“Key take aways from the Webinar are that consumer buying habits are changing and the change isn’t going away post-Covid. The eCommerce ecosystem is striving to meet the challenges of increased demand, operational disruptions and in many cases, reduced financial resources,” says Grove. “Market forces have created an epic opportunity for the Postal Service, the Commercial Carriers, small businesses, global marketplaces and technology providers who can meet the challenges of Covid to emerge as stronger and more profitable companies.”
