Supply Chain News Makers Video Series:

Gerry Hempstead on Dynamics in Parcel Shipping Market


 

 

May 8, 2017

 

The very interesting dynamics in the parcel shipping market for ecommerce continue on.

 

UPS recently announced a decrease in Q1 earnings, despite ecommerce shipments being up 7%. That's because it had to spend lots to enhance its network - and ecommerce delivery margins are much lower than in its traditonal B2B business.

 

UPS and FedEx both say they are going to get tough with etailers relative to rates and forecasts - and it could get wild. Who will blink first?

 

In this excellent video discussion Supply Chain Telesion Channel anchor Jim Jones and SCDigest editor Dan Gilmore discuss the latest news, featuring comments from parcel industry expert Gerry Hempstead. The clip was excerpted from our weekly video new broadcast from SCTV and CSCMP.

 

Is it possible for both parcel carriers and retailers to make their margin targets in this year's peak season? Hempstead offers his thoughts.

 

Please view this fast-paced and very interesting video discussion below.
