The death of the high street debate
“If the high street is dying then why is it that Amazon and Missguided…and others are opening high street shops?” That’s Professor Neil Ashworth. He leads the debate in episode 2 around the life and death and life of the high street. We also talk about the collapse of ToysRus with former director of distribution Chris Howes. SHD hits its local high street and interviews shoppers Chelsea and Amanda who add their shopping habits into the mix. Stuart Higgins, Director – Retail at BearingPoint, explains why consumers like Chelsea and Amanda have all the power and what this means for retail logistics.
The skills challenge is a major concern for logistics operators. In episode 2 we discuss how the Business on the Move Board game is taking logistics into the classroom with classroom teacher Lorna Clifford and Claire Piotrowski, Future Talent Manager at Kuehne + Nagel.
