In these times of global uncertainty, organizations are struggling to find effective forums, processes and methods, to deal with the impact of real near term events. Integrated Tactical Planning may be a solution.
Integrated Tactical Planning (ITP) is a middle management cross-functional, detailed planning process that routinely re-aligns and re-optimizes core process plans (product, demand, and supply), and facilitates effective communication, in the near-term horizon. A key benefit is the alignment of decisions to help improve customer service and financial reconciliation without dragging senior executives into the 'day to day'.
During this webinar, we will explore what a lack of coordination processes can mean for your business and how having the planning and execution processes linked and running in parallel across a monthly cycle can significantly improve your business outcomes.
Join us for this webinar to learn:
The key roles involved in executing the process
Details on the weekly ITP review (inputs, agenda, outputs, escalations)
Time to implement and realize benefits of an ITP process

Meeting customer demands for free and fast shipping, whether B2B, B2C, or B2B2C is driving the increase in parcel volume and the expansion of delivery choices. Companies are struggling to manage the shift from a centralized fulfillment model to a more decentralized model that emphasizes shipping from inventory sources (stores, manufacturers and other suppliers) in closer proximity to end consumers. Merchants now need to think differently about how to successfully manage omnichannel parcel and LTL strategies.
Getting your omnichannel shipping strategy right means improved customer service, shorter distances to the customer, increased speed of delivery, and reduced cost.
Please join us to discuss tips on implementing an effective omnichannel shipping strategy that incorporates parcel and LTL and a broad, diverse range of carriers.
In this 30-minute webinar you will learn:
Current omnichannel fulfillment trends and market data points
Challenges and critical issues facing logistics managers
What the emerging omni-channel transportation model looks like
Summary of benefits and takeaways
