    How might we

    1. Reduce delivery time so that we can shorten time lapse between customers (merchant/retail outlets) placing an order and receiving their order
    2. Reduce cost of delivery to customers
    3. Improve customer satisfaction in terms of improved supply chain and delivery, such as meeting customer preferences in terms of more optimised delivery, dynamic delivery to more preferred times of day, etc

    Marketing

    How might we
