OUR 2018-19 HOT COMPANIES By Ken Waddell

W

elcome to our special issue dedicated to the parcel shipping and logistics industry’s 2018-19 HOT SOLUTION COMPANIES. As publisher, I have the privilege to work with a variety of companies around the world that develop the innovative equipment, software, services, and supplies that are continually being brought forth to better serve parcel shippers. I know that it can be difficult to choose your solution providers; after all, with so many knowledgeable companies in this sector, how

do you narrow down the list? That’s the primary goal of our HOT COMPANIES issue, and it has been from day one — to help you get to better know the industry’s solution providers as you research your options throughout the parcel supply chain. The same is true in business as in your personal life; you aren’t going to do business with a company you don’t know. So, review the HOT COMPANIES to get better acquainted with businesses you know and, most likely, some that you don’t know. I know that you will find this issue helpful, and remember, these companies’ profiles are archived on our site for a full year, so you can refer back to each and every one of them at any time. (NOTE: Many of them will be exhibiting at PARCEL Forum ‘18 in Chicago this September, so if you’d like an easy way to meet, that’s a great way to do it. Hope to see you there!) Thank you for trusting PARCEL to help you ship more packages, more frequently, more efficiently, and more cost-effectively.

Fast and free shipping has established itself as a mainstay in the e-commerce world and is imperative to the success of e-retailers. Study after study has shown that high shipping costs and long delivery times are among the top reasons consumers would cancel an order. Furthermore, many consumers purchase products online based on the available shipping methods. To meet these increasing delivery expectations, e-retailers are partnering with delivery companies with strategic delivery footprints—including LaserShip. LaserShip was founded in 1986 and has evolved into a leading provider of last-mile delivery solutions for e-retailers, including five of the ten largest shippers in the U.S. Through its hub-and-spoke delivery network, LaserShip is able to reduce transit times and increase flexibility within the supply chain for shippers. For 32 years, LaserShip has been building a connection of facilities strategically located within the largest and fastest-growing metro areas in the Eastern U.S. Today, LaserShip partners with more than 5,000 independent contractors; making same-day, next-day and Sunday deliveries a reality for consumers. LaserShip is continuously evolving in order to satisfy increasing consumer expectations and the growth of its e-commerce partners. This year, LaserShip expanded its same-day and next-day ground services for e-commerce deliveries into additional zip codes across 11 states in its current service area—including four new metropolitan areas in New York—increasing its total service area by nearly 30 percent. This summer, LaserShip also launched its very-first customer service chatbot, Codee. The chatbot allows consumers to get quick answers to questions regarding the status of their delivery, provide special delivery instructions for the delivery driver and assist with common delivery concerns. Consumers can also request to be transferred to a live agent.

No one knowingly overspends. But, in what might be the most difficult carrier pricing environment ever for shippers, chances are you have. And, why is that? Time is a valuable resource. Contracts are intricate. Any number of gotchas or hidden terms can go unnoticed and mitigate your contractual discounts. Not to mention, without benchmarking the market, how do you know you’re getting fair terms and pricing?

CONTACT INFO: COMPANY:

Shipware was founded 18 years ago, committed to champion the shipper. We’re dedicated to leveling the playing field by creating a more balanced relationship between shippers and the carriers. With over $1 Billion in spend currently under our management, we’ve reduced parcel and LTL shippers’ costs from 10-30% by helping negotiate contract terms, auditing carrier invoices to recover your chunk of the billions in refunds that go unclaimed each year, and finding creative solutions to shipper obstacles. Not all shippers confront the same challenges, and the collaborative minds at Shipware, with 200 years of industry experience to leverage, will find the right solution for your company’s needs.

Could you set up a VCR on a timer to record your favorite show on a VHS tape while you’re out tonight? Yes… with enough converters and adapters to retrofit modern technology to an antiquated solution. Can you manage your supply chain with a static set of business rules in a spreadsheet built on tribal knowledge? Sure, if you really want to… or you can leap into the future. Retailers, manufacturers, and distributors are demanding more from supply chain technology than what current ‘leading’ providers can deliver. Other Transportation Management Systems written during a legacy era, with now archaic technology, act as a very expensive label maker. The goal is to receive orders, look-up rates, apply business rules and generate a label. SwanLeap’s NextGen TMS technology is a connected solution built with Artificial Intelligence (AI) rather than static rules to manage shipments. This infrastructure enables the TMS to impact an organization’s financial decisions, supply chain operations, purchasing, customer service, and even sales. Our platform has created an unexpected change, which we call a Black Swan event, redefining the role of the TMS in progressive organizations. SwanLeap’s technology leverages AI and machine learning to automate many of the roles in a company’s supply chain. The idea of ‘planning’ is a thing of the past, inbound ‘routing’ is gone, and dispatching is unnecessary. Tendering shipments to carriers is now automated and no one is fielding phone calls or emails in the process. Best yet, the ‘purchasing’ decision in transportation is 100% dynamic with the AI not only tapping all available freight carriers in the market for the best rate, but considering the carrier’s quality of service in the decision. The future holds greater purpose for the TMS and our NextGen functionality cannot be performed by any other TMS platform on the market. In this ever-changing industry it is vital to ensure your supply chain strategies can quickly adapt as new opportunities are presented. This is why we created SwanLeap. Are you ready to eliminate errors and turn freight into a profit center? Visit us online to learn more about how a NextGen TMS can help your company leap into the future.

Universal Robots – The World’s #1 Collaborative Robot Universal Robots has reinvented industrial robotics with flexible, collaborative robot arms (cobots). The Danish robot manufacturer pioneered the technology and remains a frontrunner in the cobot market, now the fastest growing segment of industrial automation. UR robots deliver all advantages of advanced robotic automation with none of the traditional added costs associated with robot programming, set-up, and shielded work cells. The cobots automate packaging, palletizing and material handling across industries – even in small and medium sized companies that regard automation as costly and complex. The lightweight UR robots can be moved around, automating high mix/low volume production runs. Force-sensing technology makes the robot stop operating when encountering an employee, eliminating the need for safety guarding in most scenarios. Programming is intuitive; users simply grab the robot arm to teach the desired movement, or use the touch screen. Product portfolio includes the UR3, UR5 and UR10 robot arms named after their payloads in kilos, they feature up 30 Micron repeatability and span in reach from 19.7” in to 51.2”. The new e-Series cobot line also feature a built-in force/torque sensor and a user interface with the ability to program stopping time and stopping distance for protective stops. This unique feature, not found on any other collaborative robot, greatly reduces the complexity and uncertainty involved in performing pre-deployment risk assessments. All 17 safety functions are certified by TÜV Nord and comply with the latest ISO machinery safety standards for unobstructed human-robot collaboration. Advanced users can utilize the new externally accessible 500Hz system bus to implement more complex motion control algorithms or profiles, such as advanced machine vision applications. The company has created a whole ecosystem of accessories for their cobots, called UR+. The UR+ showroom is a rapidly expanding portfolio of plug & play products certified for seamless integration with the UR cobots. UR+ span a wide range of grippers, machine vision, software and protective equipment, currently more than 90 different solutions. Universal Robots has local offices in New York, Ann Arbor, Los Angeles, Boston and Dallas and a network of more than 50 distributors and 150 Certified System Integrators across North America


Why would you trust Visible Supply Chain Management with your packages and your customer service reputation? Founded as a fulfillment company with a single warehouse in 1992, Visible has grown to become one of the country’s leading providers of shipping, packaging, fulfillment, freight services, warehousing, and logistics, up and down the supply chain.

The resulting bulk buying power, together with Visible’s New Blue shipping rates, save customers up to 41.2% on shipping costs.
