Omni-channel Shippers Look to Improve Supply Chain Agility, Meet Customer Demands
HICKORY, NC (April 13, 2016) – Transportation Insight, a leading global third-party logistics (3PL) provider, presents end-to-end supply chain solutions at the Fifth Annual Operations Summit in Cincinnati, Ohio, from April 12-14. The 3PL’s solutions enable omni-channel shippers to deliver products when and where consumers demand them while maintaining maximum enterprise value.
“From a supply chain executive’s perspective, e-commerce drives the need for a shipping platform that is flexible and meets changing customer demands,” says Ken Wacker, Transportation Insight Executive Vice President of Enterprise Business Solutions. “There are, however, cost and operational implications in meeting these demands. With multi-modal logistics solutions, user-friendly technology and a robust analytical platform in place, Transportation Insight is well-positioned to deliver Enterprise Logistics services for companies relying on e-commerce as a critical delivery channel.”
Retailers are increasingly faced with the challenge of putting their products in the right place at the right time to generate positive customer experiences that drive repeat business in an increasingly competitive marketplace. According to market research firm eMarketer, annual e-commerce sales are set to pass the $3.5 trillion mark within five years. In addition, e-commerce will grow from its current level of 7.3% of global retail sales to 12.4% in 2019.
“We look forward to addressing logistics challenges and sharing best practices with omni-channel shippers at the Operations Summit,” continues Wacker. “The solutions we develop for our clients not only provide improved visibility, but also drive operational improvement for the shipping platform. While satisfying the demands of increased volume and customer expectations, our solutions help shippers achieve a more economical way of shipping.”
In addition to strong, technology-enabled domestic transportation management solutions in Less-than-Truckload and Truckload shipping, Transportation Insight offers a robust parcel platform that provides high-volume parcel shippers with comprehensive auditing capabilities, engineered shipping optimization and advanced analytics and trend analysis.
