Joined with Lasership, Inc. Vice President Seth Pierce, and United Delivery Service Vice President of Sales Dave Meyers, Magill chose this topic to help the greater population of the logistics industry to better understand a complex theory of calculating the return on investment and how a logistics provider of a specific region can improve the bottom line. Magill said, “Working with some of the Fortune 500 companies who have successfully made it through the current retail environment and out the other side as eCommerce giants, I noticed that their sophisticated methodology to determine the ROI for their parcel mix is not common knowledge by all. The goal of this presentation is to decipher those equations, so that each logistics professional can take the tools back to the office and determine if the savings is great enough to include a logistics provider like OnTrac in their overall mix.”
