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.

Omnichannel retailers—whether essential or not—have been the ones to best weather the shut-downs and stay-at-home orders of the global pandemic.
Whether it’s contactless ordering and payment, or contactless delivery, retailers will need to make major process changes to how they engage with customers in stores both now and for the foreseeable future.
