Driving ecommerce innovation: How the ‘Zalando Local Delivery Networks’ bring ecommerce to the next level

WED 14:00 - 14:30

This is a 2018 presentation

As a European company operating in 15 markets Zalando has built up strong relationships with several local delivery partners in all the countries and cities that the company operates in. Next to close relationships with market leaders such as DHL or PostNL, Zalando is also working closely together with smaller players. Zalando particularly engages with smaller parties to offer more premium delivery services such as ‘Same Day’, ‘Next Day’ or ‘Wish Day’. The ties with these parties have grown stronger and broader and have developed from single connections into true networks. In a next step Zalando is now opening these so called ‘Local Delivery Networks’ to external ecommerce partners. Instead of setting up and negotiating the entire delivery infrastructure by themselves, external ecommerce partners can seamlessly integrate into a proven and reliable networks that literally delivers on Zalando standards.

In his presentation Remko Bakker, Team Lead Business Development - Logistics Platform Services at Zalando, will dive deeper into the functionality and the expansion plans of the ‘Local Delivery Networks’ and how and why external ecommerce partners can profit from joining them. At the moment several ‘Local Delivery Networks’ are live in different German metropolitan areas and Amsterdam, with further expansion plans.
