PARCEL FORUM '16 • September 12-14 • Gaylord Texan, Dallas


Our 2016 theme is clever, but its meaning goes much deeper. Yes, the parcel shipping, warehousing, distribution and logistics industry is moving forward at “same-day” speed in large part to the role technology has playing in increasing customer demand and expectation in both the B2B and B2C (Direct-to-Consumer) markets. Whether you like it or not, the industry is moving forward and companies who fail to recognize the shift taking place within the supply chain will get trampled.

For the past 13 years, PARCEL Forum has been at the forefront of educating, enlightening and entertaining those of you responsible for packaging, material handling, warehousing, shipping and distribution of parcel-sized packages. And during that time, we have helped thousands of small-package supply chain professionals learn how to ship more packages, more frequently, more efficiently, and more cost-effectively.
