Meeting description


Individually tailored learning & networking experience Heads of eCommerce & Omnichannel, Supply Chain Warehouse & Logistics Directors, Heads of International, COOs, Heads of Fulfilment and Delivery.

We held our first episode of the 3PL spotlight series in early April, which turned out to be a massively insightful experience for everyone involved! Throughout the 3PL Spotlight Series we’ll be inviting different Hive recommended partners to shine a light on specific aspects of their offering, providing Retail Hive members with a convenient window to compare and contrast the various services and products offered by 3PLs.

We’ll be showcasing new innovations from the large incumbents as well as smaller more niche providers that have been recommended by Retail Hive members so you can keep on top of the latest offerings in this space. The series will also give you a rhythm of touchpoints with your peer group so you can benchmark applications, performance and cost of 3PLs together.

For the second episode of the 3PL series we will be focusing on transportation and the final mile, inviting 3PLs to showcase what is different, new and unique about their options for transportation of inventory and how they execute the final mile of the customer journey. Participants will hear from a selection of partners who have been recommended by members within the community, followed by Q&A in Pollen Groups curated based on size, shared journeys and priorities.

If this boardroom focus is a top priority for you book now to request to join the discussion. Once you have selected to join, and your request is accepted, you will receive a notification in “My Notifications” in your profile confirming your booking!

Following this acceptance a member of The Retail Hive team will reach out to schedule some time in your diary to understand more about your specific needs and send you the calendar invite with all the details you need.

You can review all your meetings and status of your bookings in “My Meetings” on your profile page.
