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.

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.
