Amazon Flex and More Highlights from #Shoptalk17

Lionel Richie and Amazon’s Prime Now boss Stephenie Landry opened on Sunday evening the second Shoptalk conference which we will be covering this week.

Prime Now is now, almost two years after launch, available in 45 cities in seven countries. Even in Tokio.

Amazon Uber-like delivery service Amazon Flex has to be understood as spin-off, Landry told the audience.

Regarding the outlook for global retail, the new Flipkart CEO Kalyan Krishnamurthy presented how he wants to keep Amazon in India at a distance (sorry for the quality of the picture):

After Returnly having won the first startup day, today’s Monday will see a heavy focus on returns and logistics services for the last mile.

Last not least, Marc Lore, founder of Diapers.com and Jet.com, will in an interview present a strategy update as the new e-commerce boss at Walmart under the (promising?) title „Start Up Speed at Walmart Scale“.
