Integrate E-Commerce and Achieve Transportation Excellence
Long gone are the days when e-commerce was just a side project. It is now a main driver of growth across retail, wholesale, and manufacturing alike. E-Commerce retail sales in the US grew at nearly 15% last year, about 10 times the 1.5% growth rate for retail overall. To seize this opportunity shippers need to integrate their e-commerce fulfillment with their transportation management capabilities.

Learn how e-commerce is driving increasing complexity in logistics
Hear how to build an integrated approach that enables omni-fulfillment, increasing customer service, while controlling costs
See how other customers such as Incipio are supporting their growth with multi-mode transportation solutions
The changes to shipping are continuously changing, with shippers needing to accommodate home delivery, drop shipments, and international customers. The opportunities are exploding, but transportation needs to have an integrated strategy, or the additional revenue growth will be offset by higher costs. Joint the webcast and lead your transportation team on a path to profitable and flexible growth.
