eCommerce has driven global parcel shipment volumes sky-high. Today’s consumers are comfortable buying from eCommerce vendors located overseas, boosting the number of packages being shipped cross-border. Simultaneously, retailers have adopted an omnichannel shipping strategy that has shifted inventory from centralized distribution centers to brick-and-mortar stores and even directly from manufacturers, regardless of their location.
This has resulted in an avalanche of inbound packages that has overwhelmed U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) resources, whose systems have historically been geared to processing larger containers. Add to that more retailers using an endless aisle to deliver goods from anywhere to anywhere in an attempt to capitalize on an omnichannel shipping strategy, and you have a lot of small packages traveling internationally.
With this growth in international shipping, there are plenty of challenges being faced by global shippers, including:
Border security compliance

Analyst Insight: The current and dominant state of supply-chain finance funding has proved to be unsustainable, given the increasingly global nature of today’s supply chains and economic volatility. The result has been a move away from single-funder, bank-led supply-chain finance programs to multi-funder programs that ensure all currencies and jurisdictions are covered.

Industry 5.0 — the fifth industrial revolution — places workers in the middle of the technological advancements occurring throughout the supply chain. While Industry 4.0 focused on the internet of things (IoT) and interconnectedness, the real value comes from putting workers in the middle of these technological evolutions.
By keeping workers at the center of the conversation, Industry 5.0 enables strong collaborative efforts between humans and robots, provides the foundation for the rise of the worker-centric DC, and ultimately results in a happier, more productive workforce.
In this live, interactive webinar, James Hendrickson, director of product & offering management, Honeywell Safety & Productivity Solutions, will explore:
How workercentric solutions accelerate DC productivity
Why technology in the DC will propel tomorrow’s mobile workers
The trends and investments that can boost the performance of your DC operations
