Last Mile Experts

Rumours earlier this year that Amazon was buying an Italian supermarket chain were quickly quashed. But would the online giant be in the market for a retail footprint in Italy or anywhere else in Europe? Ian Kerr (Postal Hub podcast) and Marek Różycki (Last Mile Experts) discuss the possibilities:
– The Whole Foods Market acquisition
– Delivery fees on Whole Foods purchases
– Why is Amazon so interested in fresh?
– Amazon’s previous and current partnerships with Italian supermarkets
– Regional supermarket chains
– Would one supermarket chain be enough for Amazon?
– Dark stores and fresh food partnerships
– Super-fast delivery, and competing with Glovo, Instacart, Gorillas and others
– Pressure on the gig economy model in Europe
– What happens when venture capital stops funding super-fast delivery?
– Would Amazon look at acquiring the supermarket with the best tech?
