Transportation Insight Spotlights Innovative E-Commerce Solutions at Trade Show
Global Lead Logistics Provider’s Parcel Experts Share Insights at Parcel Forum 2016
HICKORY, NC (September 12, 2016) – Transportation Insight, a multi-modal third-party logistics solutions provider, showcases its Parcel Solutions at North America’s largest trade show serving shippers that rely on packaging, material handling, warehousing, shipping and distribution of parcel-sized packages. For the first time, the global lead 3PL highlights its Tier 1 parcel services at Parcel Forum in Dallas, from Sept. 12-14.
“E-commerce is driving explosive growth and tremendous opportunities across our North American economy. With that growth comes a number of challenges for our shipper-clients in meeting the ever-increasing expectations from their customers that seek more choices, greater visibility and faster delivery times,” says Transportation Insight President and CEO Chris Baltz. “Our company provides best-in-class logistics solutions across all modes of transportation. Our parcel solutions are underpinned by our outstanding team of engineers who bring best practices, strategies and systems to our clients, ultimately optimizing all aspects of parcel logistics to the benefit of their end customers. We’re excited to introduce some of these experts, as well as our innovative solutions, to shippers attending this year’s Parcel Forum.”
As a key component of Transportation Insight’s enterprise logistics solutions, the company’s robust parcel platform utilizes Parcel Audit, Parcel Engineering and web-based Advanced Parcel Analytics to evaluate, diagnose and prescribe optimal small package shipping strategies. Transportation Insight’s “carrier agnostic” approach allows the 3PL to introduce parcel shippers to a broad network of the most reputable carriers. As a provider of Co-Managed Logistics®, Transportation Insight’s partner clients can access vital resources engineering, technology, analytical and account management recourses, all while maintaining a desired level of operational control. Transportation Insight’s Extended LEAN® continuous improvement methodology for the supply chain helps shippers identify opportunities for value gains across the enterprise.
Tackling these topics is especially important in the parcel world as market research firm eMarketer predicts annual e-commerce sales will pass $3.5 trillion within five years. In this environment, retailers are increasingly challenged to put their products in the right place at the right time to generate the positive customer experiences that drive shopping cart conversions and repeat business.
“We look forward to speaking with shippers about how Transportation Insight can help them evaluate better shipping methods that have been successful for our clients,” says Transportation Insight Executive Vice President of Enterprise Business Solutions Ken Wacker. “We have the technology platform to connect shippers, vendors, location facilities and end-users, providing a single network of visibility. Our audit, engineering and data analysis platform delivers comprehensive models to facilitate lower-cost, higher service delivery scenarios that clients can leverage to make better shipping decisions.”
