Now available online: Part 3 of the FRUIT LOGISTICA trend report "Fresh Produce Trade 2025"

Topic "Distribution: The digital race for the last mile” – Fourth and final part to follow in June 2017

Signs are already emerging of a new era in online retailing and delivery services that could fundamentally change the retail landscape of the future. Will there be a disruption in distribution? How can we solve the challenge of the "last mile"? Who are the new players? Part 3 of the trend report "Fresh Produce Trade 2025" answers these questions and highlights the opportunities as well as the risks.

In preparing the trend report, international experts from across the entire value chain were asked to identify the most profound changes affecting the industry. The report also draws on the expertise of the renowned Swiss think tank Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute to define the most relevant areas for action. The aim is to give industry "ideas, inspiration and insights" and to initiate a dialogue about future industry developments.

Focusing on "consumer behaviour", the fourth and final part of the trend report will be published in June 2017.

Parts 1, 2 and 3 of the trend report are available here.
