Logistics - just a necessary evil in retail? Many online retailers underestimate the success factor of well-functioning logistics in their own company. It is therefore all the more important to optimize this potential for success with best practice processes. On 6 July, industry experts from the online retail sector gathered at this year's Logistics E-Commerce Camp in Bremen and provided important input on process optimization in a total of 20 presentations and intensive workshops on three stages. Among them was the fynax team of experts led by fynax manager Saravanan Sundaram and customs expert Markus Bitzer.
