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.”

The presentation is titled, “307: Evaluating the ROI of Adding Regionals to the Parcel Carrier Mix” and is taking place on Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 from 12:40pm to 1:30pm.

OnTrac Vice President of Business Development Mark Magill discussed how to leverage regional carriers and logistics companies for an improved customer experience, speed of delivery, and reduction of transportation costs during a panel at the conference. The panel took place on the first day of the conference at the Atlanta Convention Center at AmericasMart and was moderated by Bodybuilding.com Director of Global Transportation Greg Dahlstrom.

“There are many advantages to using a multi-carrier approach for your shipping strategy,” says Magill. “The number one benefit that continues to top the lists in research each year is the cost savings that regional carriers and logistics companies provide. The larger next-day delivery footprint, greater same day options and a more personal approach to customer service are a few of the added perks that come with the full package.”
