All about the talk

The Shipping Battleground for Merchants: Rates in the Cart

Carrier guarantees of delivery dates are no longer enough to satisfy demand in a hyper competitive e-commerce environment. The advent of two day, one day–and now, even same day–expectations on delivery mean that intelligent delivery estimates–even to the minute and second–are becoming more and more important to the end consumer. What’s more, retailers need this granularity of information to help strategically place their inventory to satisfy customer delivery needs and reduce shipping costs. This session will explore how such algorithms work and why they are a competitive edge to the merchant, as well as how to select a partner in this space.
