Shorr to Present at Operations Summit 2018 with Fruit of the Loom and Amware Logistics
Thursday, April 5th, 9:00 AM - Columbus Convention Center
"Smart Packaging Options to Stay Ahead of Rising Parcel Shipping Costs"
Shipping costs are by far your largest fulfillment-related expense. Most companies focus their cost-reduction efforts on optimizing freight strategies when in fact product packaging may hold the most promise for cutting freight expenses and boosting profits.
Identifying the Common Mistakes
In this session, packaging experts will identify common mistakes made by small-parcel shippers and review a range of packaging options. We will also outline a real-world packaging optimization project for a large B2C shipper that involved automation and packaging changes to improve product presentation and drastically reduce costs.
This session will cover:
- How to identifying common packaging mistakes
- Understanding how packaging mistakes/oversights drive up shipping costs
- Packaging optimization methods that can reduce costs and improve presentation
- A case study of a company that used packaging to drive down costs
