ABSTRACT
This article highlights the 2000 E-Fulfillment Conference, which was held in London, England and chaired by chief executive of the Institute of Logistics and Transport Graham A. Ewer. The common themes throughout the conference included consolidation, failure, and challenges to maintain business models of today. A company's brand image will be significantly dependent upon its electronic fulfillment performance, which is in turn dependent upon the complexity of the process. The most dominant message that came out of the conference was that businesses are still seeking perfection, delivering what the customer wants. Customer needs must be understood in all areas of the process. Over the next five years, traditional business models will be replaced with virtual integration instead of vertical integration. These business models will be redundant after two years.
