Spend Management Experts, a leading transportation spend management consultancy, is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the Keynote & Game Changer Awards Luncheon as well as its role as a session leader and exhibitor at the thirteenth annual PARCEL Forum, September 12-14 in Dallas, Texas.
Spend Management Experts has partnered with Parcel Forum to sponsor the Game Changer of the Year Awards program and keynote luncheon featuring speaker Major General Vincent E. Boles, an expert in supply chain management and author of 4-3-2-1 Leadership. The award ceremony, scheduled for Tuesday, September 13 at 1: 00 p.m., will honor a leading company that has successfully implemented a process, technology or management practice within the past two years resulting in significant savings, enhanced productivity, or other benefits to improve parcel shipping or distribution operations. Major General Boles will also be at Spend Management Experts' booth (#515) visiting and handing out signed copies of his book following the luncheon at 2: 30 p.m.
In his fifth year speaking as Founder & CEO of Spend Management Experts at Parcel Forum, John Haber, will lead an advanced educational learning pod, Senior Stratagems. In his session Difference Makers in Today's Global Transportation (Tuesday, September 13, 9: 00 - 9: 50 a.m.), Haber will discuss the increasingly fast-paced and dynamic global transportation industry. Attendees will learn how to recognize and understand the impact of alternative shipping solutions, discover how the various solutions may impact business differently based on the global regions, and identify the decision-making factors that will determine success in the global parcel supply chain. Haber will also participate in the closing session on Wednesday, September 14 at 1: 40 p.m., where he will focus on the "Top Ten Transportation Takeaways" from this years' event.
"E-commerce is transforming the way consumers purchase goods, which in turn is changing the global economy and transportation industry. These changes are redefining customer expectations and companies need to adapt swiftly," said Haber. "We are thrilled to once again share our unique insight with senior-level supply chain executives and to sponsor the Keynote & Game Changer Awards Luncheon."
Since 2003, Business-to-Business (B2B) and Direct-to-Consumer (i.e. Home Delivery) shippers of small-packages (70lbs & under) have attended PARCEL Forum to learn how to ship more packages, more frequently, more efficiently and more cost-effectively.
