0 years ago, we featured a special section in our PARCEL magazine called the TOP COMPANIES, and it featured full-page profiles of 13 industry solution providers. A couple of years later, we changed the name to HOT SOLUTION COMPANIES, and now today…. I would like to announce the 2021-2022 HOT PARCEL LOGISTICS SOLUTION COMPANIES. Take your time and give all the information on the following pages about these 43 companies a very good look. Each of these unique solution providers has something different to offer to

improve your parcel shipping, logistics, and overall supply chain. And make sure to take some extra time on each company’s website, to visit their social media pages, and even to email or call them to get more answers to help with your industry challenges. This special sponsored-content magazine filled with ideas to help you improve your parcel shipping is announced every year at about this time; however, we will continue to promote these companies for the next 12 months to give you even more opportunities to check out each of these industry movers and shakers.

a2b is celebrating its 20th year in business in 2021. We operate facilities in both the east and west, which together can reach up to 94% of US households in just 2 days via ground service, and at reduced cost. We begin by taking a holistic approach to the customer lifecycle. From order acquisition and tracking, to same-day order fulfillment, to customer care and returns management, we can provide you with a turnkey program or on an à la carte basis. SERVICES IN MORE DETAIL: Order Fulfillment – Picking, packing, and shipping isn’t rocket science, but to do it quickly and accurately on a consistent basis requires both technology and experience. Our fulfillment process is completely paperless and system-driven. Pickers are told where to go, what to get, and where to take it, verifying throughout the process that it has been done correctly. Packers scan each item to further ensure accuracy, and then our logic-based shipping system follows custom-tailored business rules resulting in the package shipping with the best carrier, every time.

Order Management – Manage the entire customer lifecycle with our sophisticated and secure PCI Certified system. Orders are transmitted into our system from shopping platforms, call centers, and ERP systems where a host of value-adding tasks are performed, including channel tracking, inventory validation and allocation, credit card authorization, continuity management and installment billing, and more, as applicable. The system then serves as the customer care platform for efficient customer management. Extensive reporting helps merchants understand their businesses. Customer Care – Treating customers well not only keeps them coming back but also encourages positive reviews, resulting in increased sales. Our expert team of careeroriented customer care professionals in our Georgia and Utah locations are highly trained to assist clients with orders, payments, returns, technical support, and even save-the-sale strategies to skillfully protect revenue. We also monitor social platforms and manage chargebacks. Drop Shipping – Shipping on behalf of a retailer is serious business, as orders must represent the retailer well. Therefore, retailers have devised stringent guidelines encompassing every detail of the drop shipment, including packaging, presentation, speed of fulfillment, shipment carrier and service and finally, the data back to the retailer, which enables them to communicate seamlessly with their customer. a2b understands drop shipping. We support programs with dozens of retailers and make the process extremely efficient. Retail Distribution – Fulfillment to retailers is a complex and technologically challenging undertaking. Each retailer has a unique set of guidelines and requirements that must be adhered to, including case and pallet specifications, labeling requirements, routing and transportation guidelines, and integration requirements via EDI (Electronic Data Interchange). We cut our teeth in retail and have honed rock-solid processes that deliver outstanding results. We offer EDI connectivity with every major retailer making set-up a snap. Amazon - Selling with Amazon is important for most marketers. For many Amazon sellers, utilizing the help and expertise of an Amazon-experienced 3PL can be a more cost-effective option than FBA or self-fulfillment. a2b supports dozens of companies working with Amazon via Vendor Central and Seller Central (FBM and Seller Fulfilled Prime) all with an excellent track record of compliance and program success.

FirstMile-True Multi-Carrier E-Commerce? If you’ve only used shipping for personal or low-volume shipments, it may seem pretty straightforward. You select a carrier and you pay the necessary postage to ship an item. You drop the package off at one of the carrier’s brick and mortar locations or at a mailbox, and then they do the rest. High growth e-commerce businesses quickly find that shipping isn’t quite so simple. Transportation costs have a big effect on your bottom line. E-commerce is highly competitive, with more consumers shopping online and industry giants like Amazon setting a 2-day service expectation. If you want your cut of the e-commerce pie, you’re going to need help.

The Solution Most shippers are forced to choose one carrier: UPS, FedEx or USPS. Is any one of them perfect? No. USPS does a great job on lighter weight packages, UPS does a good job on heavier packages, and FedEx is known for its speed of service. How about regional parcel and mail carriers? They have their strengths and weaknesses too.

What if you had a company that could shop each of your packages across all these modes and drive the right label to your shipping software for each order? How about a company that could pick all the packages up on the same truck, run it through sort operations, and linehaul it into the right carrier network each day? What FirstMile Can Do to Help FirstMile is just that company. We’ve been helping companies of every size and market optimize their shipping in order to reduce costs, save time, and provide the best possible experience for every customer. Our system makes it easy and fast for you to access the best carrier for the job, selecting from a range of national, regional, and local parcel and mail carriers, including First Class and Priority Mail. FirstMile is a multi-carrier e-commerce parcel carrier. Our unique approach allows small, medium and even large ecommerce shippers to get the best combination of price and service across a wide range of USPS workshare and parcel carrier partners–including our own network. We do this all with one API connection, one pickup via our FirstMile owned and operated vehicles, one invoice, and one point of contact. We even handle claims. The FirstMile shipping algorithm works by first shopping each package for price and service.

The CVP Impack packs up to 500 parcels per hour with one or two operators, while the CVP Everest packs up to 1,100 parcels per hour using two operators. These solutions offer an average of 50% reduction in shipping volume and an average of 88% reduction in packing labor as they can replace up to 20 manual packing stations.

In fact, customers see a full return on investment in as little as six to 18 months depending on parcel volume. Benefits of the CVP Automated Packaging Solutions include:  Combats labor constraints: By only requiring one or two operators, the CVP combats several labor issues, including sourcing labor, lack of labor reliability, unpredictable peak periods, and space constraints.

5 ways to cut costs at every mile. Shippers are facing major challenges as small parcel costs increase, budgets shrink, and more customers expect free shipping. Carriers are adding and increasing surcharges on top of rising annual rates, resulting in higher costs and greater pressure on shippers’ budgets. Meanwhile, corporate expectations are to cut costs and maintain service levels while offering free shipping. So, what can companies do to get a handle on the last mile? These five steps are an important place to start.

EMAIL:

CPSTransportation@usbank.com

1. Get visibility into the entire supply chain. We all know shipping isn’t free, but customers increasingly expect not to pay for it. That’s why businesses need to understand the true allocated cost per package. Business intelligence that allows a holistic look at the supply chain enables shippers to understand details that, over time, can make a serious impact on shipping budgets. 2. Focus on financial validation. Using a fully automated process, shippers can break down freight costs and assign GL codes. Essential for tracking costs, GL coding can be a key component of fraud prevention. Marrying carrier data with shipper data allows shippers to look for any misuse of the account. 3. Identify opportunity with proactive account management. Smart information management is key to streamlining processes and cutting costs. However, disparate systems and lack of resources to analyze data often means improvement opportunities are missed. U.S. Bank Freight Payment makes small parcel data manageable with easy-touse reporting functionality and proactive account management. 4. Audit all shipments. While many companies only spot-check small parcel shipments, it’s essential to audit every package that’s sent to ensure overpayments aren’t being made and to capture the data needed for internal review. To do this correctly requires a true small-parcel rating engine that audits every package. If a package arrives late or damaged, we’ll know, and fees can be recovered. 5. Move toward automation. This final step enables the previous four, so it’s essential for any shipper. Manual processes are time-consuming, more error prone, and make data analysis nearly impossible. A partner like U.S. Bank Freight Payment can automate your small parcel and large freight processing, streamlining data feeds from multiple carriers’ systems.
