Valerie McSween to present at the Shipper-Carrier Roundtable during the Surface Transportation Summit

Valerie McSween will present at the Shipper-Carrier Roundtable during the Surface Transportation Summit on October 13th, 2016.

Shippers are facing a soft economy, ever more demanding customers and a high US dollar this year as they grapple with developing efficient, low cost supply chains to bring their goods to market. These forces are putting added pressure on shippers to refine their logistics networks to keep freight costs under control. Motor carriers continue to face cost pressures as the search for qualified drivers, new government regulations and the requirement to purchase energy efficient trucks push freight rates higher.

While these issues are transforming the industry, new technologies, big data, the internet of things and multi-channel distribution are upending current business processes.

How should shippers and carriers react to the new set of forces shaping the transportation industry? A number of leading executives will participate in this round-table discussion. The moderator will lead the panel through a full analysis of the key issues shaping the industry.

Our new customized services include ClickandCollectCanada.com and FinalMileCanada.com

Click and Collect Canada

Click and Collect Canada provides retailers with a convenient and less expensive shipping option when compared to traditional last-mile residential deliveries.
Gone are the days when customers have to stay home all day waiting for their purchase to arrive. They just need to select the most convenient pick-up depot in their area. We currently have hundreds of locations to choose from across Canada and adding new pick-up terminals every month.

Final Mile Canada

Final Mile Canada was developed so traditional and online retailers can provide their customers with multiple residential delivery options across Canada. Our Final-Mile delivery services include;

  • Curb Side – A one person delivery with tailgate to the customers’ curb side, driveway or garage.
  • First Room – A one or two person delivery to the first room of the residence.
  • White Glove – A two person delivery to the room of choice and debris removal. Custom assembly is available

With a population of over 35 million Canada offers on-line retailers significant growth opportunities. But with a land mass that exceeds 9.98 million square kilometers many find it difficult to get their products into their customers hands.
