Replay: LiveOnWeb on On-Demand Delivery

As we compiled our 2016 Top 50 Logistics Companies ranking, one thing became apparent: One billion dollars invested in logistics startups in the past two years means enormous disruption to freight networks and modes of delivery. The industry faces a sea change. Not in years. Now.

Our April 20 LiveOnWeb program looked at how online shopping is creating a race to provide logistics on-demand. The replay is available at the top of this page.

You'll learn who is driving the change and how it will affect the market for local delivery services.

The program will shine a light on the world's foremost internet retailer, Amazon.com, and a future transportation network in which human couriers work alongside an array of automated vehicles to bring goods directly to consumers.

Live in studio to talk about the latest developments in on-demand delivery were: 

• Jason Moser, an analyst with The Motley Fool

Evan Armstrong, president of Armstrong & Associates Inc., to talk about the new Top 50 Logistics Companies ranking.  

And in a prerecorded interviews, we talked about the emergence of Amazon's own delivery network with Phil Evers, associate professor of Supply Chain Management at the Robert H. Smith School of Business of the University of Maryland, as well as with Rob Howard, CEO of Grand Junction Inc. Transport Topics Senior Feature Writer Dan Bearth hosts the program. (Editor's note: Previously scheduled guests Pat Thomas and Sunil Daluvoy are no longer available to appear.)
