Editor’s column: gearing up for EDX 2015

Preparations for eDelivery Expo (EDX 2015) are well under way, and part of those preparations involves me interviewing some of the great speakers we’ve got lined up.

The first such interview piece is now live on eDelivery, and is with Guy Meisl, Head of European Distribution at Deckers Outdoor Corporation. Among other things, the California-based multi-brand organisation is behind one of the most enduring footwear trends of the last five years – Ugg boots.

That’s not the only interview piece we’ve published in the last few days. Last week, along with more than 1,000 other people, I was at MetaPack’s Delivery Conference, where I was able to catch up with Helen Wylde, Parcelforce Worldwide’s sales and marketing director, and hear more about their recently launched Select service.

Elsewhere on the site, you can read about wnDirect’s international expansion plans and how a former Dutch paratrooper is part of those plans, and how Manchester’s My Parcel Delivery closed 2014 on a high.

We’ll be continuing to publish regular items on EDX 2015 between now and 25 March, when the show kicks off. We’ll looking at some of the themes that will be explored, examining the line-up, and – we hope – giving you lots of great reasons to attend. You’ll find more info on EDX 2015 here.

And, if you haven’t already, why not subscribe to eDelivery and get our weekly newsletter summarising the main stories we’ve covered – you’ll find details on that here.

You can also join our LinkedIn group for analysis and networking as it happens, or if you want your updates in real-time find us on Twitter @edeliverynet.
