Watch the recording from the joint presentation from ProShip and Körber Supply Chain at Parcel Forum 2022 in Chicago

2020 brought changes unlike many parcel shippers had ever experienced. Coming off the heels of 2021’s explosive e-commerce, 2022 has been a year of uncertainty for shippers. Who has the power now – shippers or carriers? With supply chain disruptions still pending, there is one thing that we can count on: shippers need strategies to optimize their shipping program, no matter the supply chain landscape.

ProShip recently shared the stage with Körber Supply Chain at Parcel Forum 2022 in Chicago to take a deep dive into one of those strategies, utilizing parcel rate shopping to meet delivery commitments at the lowest cost possible. ProShip’s Co-Founder, Justin Cramer, joined Mark Taylor of Körber at the session, Advanced Strategies for Parcel Rate Shopping in an Evolving Supply Chain Era, on Tuesday, October 11 at Parcel Forum. Both presenters offer a look at what the past has taught us and how we can use that knowledge to move forward with supply chain best practices. They also explore technical complexities of parcel rate shopping as well as systems integration requirements to take this approach.
