" e-Fulfilment State-of-the-Art"


On 24 June 2005 the e-Thematic project held its 3rd and final seminar – “e-Fulfilment State-of-the-Art” -  at the University of Verona, in conjunction with university’s LogiMaster programme.  This highly successful event was attended by more than 150 representatives from both the industry and academia.

The objective of the event was to present the findings of the e-thematic project to the industry, academia and the Directorate General Information Society Technologies of the European Commission. In addition to the findings and recommendations, industry specialists and academic scholars presented their insights on e-fulfilment.

The day was divided into two parts. In the morning session, the e-Thematic project and its results were presented as well as different business models.  Attendees had the opportunity to learn about the e-fulfilment strategies of TNT, the e-commerce model of Alastian.com and the Do’s and Don’ts of e-fulfilment, based on extensive research by IMRG.

In the afternoon session, academics and industry leaders discussed different e-fulfilment issues in a round table chaired by the LogiMaster programme.
