Listen in to this discussion to discover a supply chain solution that can meet the evolving needs of today’s modern shippers.
The dramatic effect the pandemic had on consumer demand and e-commerce sales and volume is undeniable. In fact, e-commerce sales grew 43% in 2020 after the first year of the pandemic alone. So, what does this significant increase mean for shippers? It means that shippers have an increased need for parcel capabilities due to the effects of the pandemic on e-commerce. Several years ago, most shippers were unprepared for the additional capacity brought on by the pandemic and could not scale quickly enough because of their technology limitations. While the future is still unclear, the pandemic made it obvious that the flexibility to adapt as your needs change is critical. ProShip’s own Head of Enterprise Sales, Tony Verrill, sat down with Mark Jeffries at this year’s Blue Yonder Icon to discuss the post-pandemic effects of e-commerce on the shipping industry and the importance of flexibility in your supply chain. The discussion touches on important points surrounding the state of the industry, what both shippers and carriers are looking for in supply chain solutions, and how ProShip provides a flexible yet robust shipping software for all of the above.
About this Shipping Software Interview
During the discussion, Tony shares that today, the shipping industry holds a different mindset in terms of what people are looking for from their carrier partners. There has been a shift from prioritizing diversification of the carrier library to rationalization of carriers (who to use and are they providing value). More and more shippers are realizing the importance of rationalization of carriers in a post-pandemic world; it’s all about how you can work with your carrier partners smarter and do more with less to find cost-efficiencies in your business.
