What You Will Learn
Interest in adding a TMS for parcel continues to rise among shippers as its multifaceted ROI becomes better understood. Case in point: while a TMS for parcel can help shippers cost-effectively manage rapid increases in parcel volumes, it can also help manufacturers and other new parcel shippers instantly adapt to provide excellent customer service in a profitable way.
However, properly building a business case for a parcel TMS software investment can be challenging. While a parcel TMS can prove to be a valuable driver of long-term success, companies need to follow a careful process to ensure a parcel TMS is a good fit, and how a shipper implements the technology impacts just how well the investment will pay off.
Many shippers are surprised to discover they can actually use their own shipping data and analyses to forecast the ROI of this investment specific to their shipping needs and with great precision to better understand what’s at stake. In this presentation from Logistyx President Ken Fleming, shippers will learn how to leverage their own data to answer the questions:
1. Do the benefits offered by a parcel TMS outweigh its total cost of ownership?
2. Can adoption of a parcel TMS deliver ROI during each stage of its rollout?
With these answers in hand, shippers can then build a business case for a parcel TMS that outlines the scope, goals, benefits and potential cost of a TMS for parcel shipping solution.
