Top 3 Reasons to Attend the Logistics Management Webinar: How to Solve the Unique Challenges of Multi-Carrier Parcel Shipping

In partnership with Logistics Management, the next webinar in our series will take place on June 20, discussing the differences between a TMS for freight and a TMS for parcel shipping, and how you can leverage both to land an integrated transportation strategy worldwide. Our webinar will focus on the considerations that should go into the development of a transportation strategy, drawing from use cases that include modern day transportation challenges such as high-volume e-commerce and international shipping. Based on our experience with companies across the globe, we will also introduce our “transportation maturity model” and help you understand where you are and how you can design, implement and optimize a transportation strategy that ensures you are achieving on-time delivery in full while maximizing revenue per shipment.

Think you don’t have time for a webinar? Think again. Global package shipping grew by 48% between 2015 and 2017, and according to FedEx Corp. chairman and founder Fred Smith, B2C e-commerce sales are expected to reach $3.2 trillion by 2020. This will likely translate into never-before-seen shipping volumes over the next couple of years. Adding another layer of complexity: same-day delivery. As of 2017, 15% of global retailers offered same-day delivery service to their customers, and the same-day delivery market is expected to grow significantly. While same-day delivery is a big opportunity for all retailers to improve their service level, it requires a high degree of order fulfillment and logistics sophistication. Major challenges, such as very short fulfillment lead-times and flexible last-mile delivery have to be overcome while bringing cost down to a level that consumers are willing to digest.
