Indianapolis -- — 

enVista, a leading global supply chain consulting, transportation management, and IT services firm, will share insight during two educational sessions at Parcel Forum, a trade show and conference focused on helping parcel shipping and distribution professionals develop and manage a more efficient shipping process. enVista executives will share expertise on topics related to measuring performance and transportation planning during the event. Details of the sessions include:
How to Perfect Peak Performance

  • Date: Wednesday, Sept. 14 (9:00 a.m. – 9:50 a.m.)
  • Presenters: Joe Wilkinson, Transportation Director and Mark Taylor, Transportation Project Manager
  • Description: During the 2015 peak, we again saw challenges in e-commerce deliveries. From late deliveries, to pick-up capacity issues and everything in between, shippers felt the pain. Carriers have made significant investments in planning and preparing for peak season and have seen positive results. However, there is a point at which further investments by the carriers have a diminishing return. So, how do shippers take back control and reduce peak risk? It requires changes in shipping methods, shifting customer demand and developing a comprehensive omni-channel strategy.

How a Transportation Plan Drives DC Locations

  • Date: Wednesday, Sept. 14 (9:00 a.m. – 9:50 a.m.)
  • Presenter: Nate Rosier, Senior Director of Supply Chain Solutions
  • Description: Determining your next distribution center location starts with understanding how to balance your customer needs with your network costs. Many companies leverage their network and transportation plan in order to enhance corporate competitive advantage. A well thought-out transportation and network plan can create enhanced customer service at reduced costs with the right approach. In this session, learn how to incorporate your corporate strategy into your transportation plan, including optimizing the trade-off between transportation cost and customer service. Once those decisions have been made, you can begin to implement a network strategy that achieves this balance.
