Parcel Shipping for Manufacturing

Priorities in manufacturing have changed.  With the increase in e-commerce, many manufacturers now find themselves selling products in a DTC landscape, where they are shipping parcels, not freight, and the customer delivery experience is a cornerstone to success.   As a result, manufacturers are taking a hard look at the IT infrastructure of their supply chains and making significant changes, one of which is implementing a cloud multi-carrier shipping system.           


Parcel Shipping for Manufacturing Resources

Data-Driven Logistics manufacturing

Often, we hear or read that data is playing an increasingly important role in the manufacturing industry. Think of IoT, predictive maintenance, or robotics. But the truth is, many manufacturers still struggle to aggregate, analyze, and leverage data, particularly in logistics, where data is critical to meeting customers’ high demands for a fast, personalized product delivery experience. The following three steps can help manufacturers leverage data to meet customer expectations today and tomorrow.



3D Printing Logistics DiManEx

3D printing technology, also known as Additive Manufacturing (AM), has quickly had a significant impact on global supply chains and the logistics industry, shortening time-to-market and significantly optimizing end-to-end supply chains. In fact, by digitzing and de-centralizing the production process as well as reducing and/or eliminating inventory requirements, 3D printing technology suddenly puts global manufacturers within reach of manufacturing “nirvana,” otherwise known as short supply chains with unprecedented flexibility.

3D Printing Parcel Shipping

As customers, we often want our orders delivered today, not tomorrow, and at the destination of our choosing. And our personal experiences with e-commerce have actually influenced the way we purchase for businesses, setting the bar high for companies in the manufacturing industry and forcing them to toggle between supply chain efficiency and optimization and market resilience and risk. This balance is difficult to achieve, and challenges typically arise on six fronts.
