The State of Parcel Shipping 2020 - The Rise of the Global Parcel Chain
E-commerce sales continue to increase dramatically and as a percentage of total retail sales. Global e-commerce is growing at twice the rate of domestic online sales as online consumers are more comfortable than ever buying from merchants in other countries. That is why so many e-commerce and retail executives believe that expanding into global markets is crucial to the growth of their organizations.

To compete, online and traditional brick-and-mortar retailers are adopting omnichannel fulfillment to extend their logistics footprint from centralized warehouse fulfillment to instead ship from a network of stores, suppliers, and manufacturers. Shipping directly to the consumer from alternate inventory sources helps to reduce stock outages, expedite delivery at reduced shipping costs, and improve customer brand loyalty with more last-mile delivery choices.

But omnichannel fulfillment introduces a range of management complexities, especially cross-border fulfillment. The next generation of global e-commerce requires development of global parcel chains capable of supporting more carriers, modes, shipping volumes, and compliance regulations.

Please join Bob Malley, Managing Director of Pierbridge, Inc., part of the WiseTech Global group, as he describes current global parcel chain trends. This webinar is ideal for anyone involved in the retail supply chain who wants to:

• Turn their brick-and-mortar footprint into a competitive advantage with enterprise ship-from-store, buy online pick up in store (BOPIS), and returns management solutions
• Evolve the global omnichannel supply chain to incorporate drop shipping, customs compliance, and cross-border consolidation
• Expand carrier networks to include local couriers and white-glove delivery, and delivery destinations such as lockers and in-store pickups
