Parcel Management

Expand Geographic Footprint, Enable Interlining, Increase Revenue, Become Demand-Driven

Parcel management companies compete in a highly competitive marketplace. Customers demand low rates, on-time deliveries, and flexible shipping options—all of which can mean increased costs. Is it possible to deliver these services to customers while lowering your costs? Yes, by connecting your company to the cloud-based Real Time Value Network and subscribing to the Parcel Management Best Practice Template.

Challenge: Competitive differentiation requires your company to have global reach. You need to plan, collaborate, and coordinate with your trading partners on different levels. You need the ability to create the most optimal plan for customer fulfillment, track shipments across multiple partner networks, and instantly share this data with your customers. However, this is impossible given the technology landscape beyond your four walls.

Other technologies struggle with these limitations:

  • Can’t scale to meet the huge data volumes associated with the parcel industry
  • Planning engines can’t optimize the entire network
  • How-to sense and manage ever-changing demand signals in real time
  • Vertical systems and databases that can’t integrate critical demand, supply, and logistics data
  • No visibility of outside partner actions
  • No ability to plan, coordinate, or collaborate with outside partners.

Solution: Connect to the Real Time Value Network and subscribe to the Parcel Management Best Practice Template
