The third edition of Last Mile Fulfilment Asia (LMFAsia), a tradeshow for the retail, e-commerce, logistics and parcel industries, will be held from March 2-3, 2017 at the Singapore Expo.
Themed Go Global, Deliver Local, the event aims to drive and strengthen a borderless fulfilment process, where in-market industry players fortify their business locally while expanding their foothold in the region.

The two-day conference and exhibition, organised by SingEx Exhibitions, will deep-dive into the need to tap on the potential growth of e-commerce, and optimise the cross border fulfilment and delivery processes.
The multi-track conference component of the trade show will focus on evolutionary topics such as turning fulfilment challenges into opportunities, designing cross-border fulfilment solutions across Asia.
Separately, the exhibition component of LMFAsia will offer a business matching platform for companies to meet potential business partners, and showcase products and technologies that add value in the delivery chain. There will be three thematic zones dedicated to specific solution categories ranging from last mile, fulfilment centres, warehousing to automation.
Adrian Sng, general manager of SingEx Exhibitions, said: “Industry giants from China and US are pursuing significant e-commerce market shares in Asia and it will be a challenging year with headwinds affecting many in the fulfilment business. In order for companies to gain a competitive edge, there is a need to leverage technology to advance and conquer the last mile.”
