APICS 2017


Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, San Antonio, TX

Over three information-packed days, you’ll hear from a dynamic lineup of business leaders, authors and innovators as they share their knowledge and expertise. Explore topics that are forward-thinking for supply chain, logistics and operations management professionals with our 2017 learning paths inspired by the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) Framework: Plan, Source, Make, Deliver, Return, Enable.

Join Jim Haller, Senior Manager, Parcel Spend Optimization and Kyle Ous, Manager, Packaging Optimization at Chainalytics on Monday, October 16 at 2:30 PM for “Is Your Packaging Ready for the “Amazon Effect?” Take a closer look into the packaging and shipping realities of distribution through final-mile, E-commerce and Amazon channels. A lot of change is taking place for companies looking to engage in the multiple distribution channels available today. The migration from brick and mortar to direct delivery presents unique handling hazards that if not planned for, could result in damaged shipments, increased product returns and dissatisfied customers. This technical presentation will discuss shipping environments and the challenges for safe transit of products. You’ll learn how to understand the shipping environment, how it impacts your products, and how to develop packaging that will survive direct delivery methods. Avoid shipping damage of your products through fulfillment partners like amazon, and understand the tradeoffs between over-packaging and optimized logistics costs. During this session real world case studies will be presented to show how other companies have overcame their direct shipping challenges.

Stop by the Chainalytics’ booth (#404)  at the conference to meet the team.
