Presentation

Transportation and logistics in 2022: Volatility, adaptability, and sustainability?

2020-2022 were years of unprecedented change that forced almost every company in Transportation & Logistics to either adapt or suffer dramatic consequences. Parcel and Postal providers actually saw greater changes given the dramatic growth in e-Commerce and package volumes combined with labor shortages. Parcel and Postal providers are looking for solutions that balance both stakeholder and customer requirements (effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability, etc.) while solving tactical problems. In this session, we will provide snapshot of how Cloud based solutions can meet these lofty expectations and how to work towards solutions that balance short-term goals against long-term initiatives.
