Converge Session Preview: Ain’t No Mountain High Enough: Peak Parcel Shipping 2021
ProShip shipping experts took notice of the obstacles that nearly every shipper ran into in 2020. With unseen capacity and unheard-of peak surcharges, a solid peak strategy with well-researched tactics from experienced professionals is necessary to survive the upcoming peak season. In this session, our speakers will outline proven methods for increased B2B and B2C parcel shipping wins.
