With almost all post and parcel operators continuing to invest in digital technologies to drive costs down and improve efficiency, what is it that allows you to differentiate and remain competitive? INFORM will look at your yard and how a yard management system (YMS), powered by Agile Optimization, enhances your competitive strategy.

In this Logistics Tech Short, INFORM is talking decision-making theory as it applies to yard management in post and parcel distribution facilities. Specifically, INFORM will take a closer look at where a YMS adds value and what the difference is between a YMS and a YMS powered by Agile Optimization.

If you're like most operators, embracing technology, understanding it's full value, and leveraging it to drive competitiveness keeps you awake at night, not the daily operational tasks of running your hub. This webinar and handouts will help you understand why it's important to leverage technology to drive competitiveness.
