CHICAGO, Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OnTrac, the largest regional parcel carrier in the United States, is exhibiting its faster, more affordable ground service at the 2012 PARCEL Forum, October 23-25 at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Chicago.
For the past two decades, the Forum has dedicated itself to the parcel shipping and distribution industry, the fastest-growing transportation segment in the United States. This year, over 40 individual sessions and workshops will cover five strategic tracks and feature more than 50 handpicked, industry-leading presenters. One of those presenters is OnTrac's Director of Business Development, Mark Magill, who will co-present with Terry Harris, the Managing Partner of Chicago Consulting, to give a presentation entitled Location, Location, Location: How the Big Guys Design Their Supply Chains.
Faster delivery time in transit has become a key component in the highly competitive landscape of e-commerce and just-in-time supply. The very largest online retailers have discovered that offering free shipping is not enough to ensure customer loyalty. Having enough warehouses in the right places is critical. This session will explain how leading organizations engineer their supply chains and tap into regional and local couriers to speed delivery and reduce cost. Attendees can also find out how to determine locations based on customer mix and availability of carriers and couriers. The session will explore utilizing third-party warehousing providers when volumes don't warrant your own DCs.
