  • What cocooning is and what it means for a startup - and how it’s different to pivoting
  • E-commerce returns and exchanges
  • The experience for passers (Passel’s delivery people) and why it’s important - and how it differs from the gig economy delivery experience
  • Passel’s partnership with Swinburne University about smart cities
  • Demand for same-day and next-day delivery
    • Which sectors?
    • What kind of customers?
