Streamlining ecommerce logistics end-to-end

Long delivery times and high delivery costs are a major obstacle to cross-border ecommerce. They have various sources – cross-border shipping fees, arcane customs procedures, and high costs of inland delivery especially to rural areas.

The Alliance’s work on ecommerce logistics goes to the heart of these challenges. We map and measure the costs of ecommerce delivery in selected trade corridors, and develop pioneering use cases and proofs of concept for delivery, address, and logistics payment technologies aimed at containing especially last-mile delivery costs.
