A new opportunity is emerging in the delivery world for public-private partnerships between the entrepreneurs and the traditional providers, but what are consumers looking for? Is safety, security and familiar services most important? Or, are consumers looking for flexible services from alternative delivery companies? Will consumers choose FedEx, UPS and the U.S. Postal Service over Amazon, Google Express and companies never heard of before?
With so many questions, what should entrepreneurs expect? There’s a Fight for the Front Door taking place between the new disruptors and the old line delivery companies, what’s in it for you?

Senior advisor at PwC - excited to see the second Internet revolution unfolding around us. Recruited out of consulting to the Leadership Team of the USPS to create new Internet businesses for the USPS in the days when the World Wide Web was being created. My team and I created a long list of new services once described in Silicon Valley as "way cool" and we watched all of them be killed off by policy makers and competitors and many others. They are being recreated today and the market is changing around them once again.
Working on the core question - can digital transformation keep pace with the fast changing global ecommerce marketplace?
