ProShip to highlight automated packing and multi-carrier shipping in April at Modex
ProShip is excited to be exhibiting in booth #B4621 at Modex 2018 in Atlanta. The show will be held at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center from April 9-12. As the speed of manufacturing and supply chain operations continues to accelerate, the future of the industry depends on today’s forward-thinking decisions. Powered by MHI, Modex gives attendees access to over 850 of the leading technology providers and supply chain solutions that allow them to “futureproof your business”.
Looking forward to the best long-term solution
Businesses should always be evaluating features, cost savings and efficiencies to determine which solutions are best for their business needs right now, and more importantly, for where their needs will be in the future.
For example, the supply chain labor force has dwindled and is facing a major skill shortage. Increases in demand, combined with an aging workforce, means that what was once simply a gap is now becoming a crisis. So instead of taking jobs away from humans, automation technologies are simply filling opportunities that businesses are unable to fill with human labor.
One of the newest technologies that are decreasing labor for retail, third party logistics and manufacturers is the 3D (dimensional) automated packing solution. As soon as an order has been picked, 3D automated packing solutions, such as our CVP, build, fill, fold and label single and multi-line orders with variable dimensions in one seamless process. The major benefit that companies are receiving is the replacement of 7-10 packing stations with one machine - that’s an 88% savings in packing labor and increase in efficiency and automation.
Another technology that is “futureproofing” businesses, and one that can work in conjunction with the CVP Automated Packing Solution, is ProShip’s Multi-Carrier Shipping Software.
Shipping is one of the biggest headaches that companies are running into with regards to future growth. For instance, did you know that by 2020, same-day delivery will drive up logistics costs as a percentage of revenue by 50%? There’s absolutely no way that businesses should be shying away from utilizing a multi-carrier platform when thinking about providing extra shipping options to their customers.
Multi-carrier shipping solutions, such as ProShip Multi-Carrier Shipping Software aid companies in selecting the best parcel carrier out of all contracted carriers based on order characteristics (weight and dimensional properties), delivery rules (delivery time and delivery zone) and carrier performance, while considering the cost differences of various carrier services. Multi-carrier shipping platforms also enable shippers to manage the creation of labels, create shipper manifests, provide tracking capabilities to customers or customer service representatives, and manage carrier rate updates.
At the Show
ProShip will be offering one-on-one meetings in our booth #B4621 during the duration of the conference. We would love to speak with you regarding your unique shipping and fulfillment situations and help you determine the best path to futureproofing your business.
To keep the conversation going, ProShip will also be sponsoring a dinner reception along with Manhattan Associates on Tuesday, April 10th. To be considered for this event, please send inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
