Pre-Conference Day Workshops

The following high quality workshops will take place for 90 minutes each 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM


Pre-conference Day Workshops — Monday, June 10th
Workshop 1:

Optimizing warehousing and transportation using advanced analytics

We will present three analytical platforms that can optimizing various warehousing and transportation functions. They are IDEA, POD and D3TO.

  • IDEA (Instantly Discover Efficient Activities) – it’s a suite of tools that can help optimize waving, tasking and picking functions at a warehouse by turbocharging existing systems/WMS.  It aims to bring together advanced analytical optimization algorithms, simulation and machine learning algorithms to make intelligent operational decisions.
  • POD (Packaging on Demand) - given the rise of dimensional based fee structures in today’s transportation market, as well as the reduction in overall trucking capacity, shippers are facing new challenges in their supply chains.  Companies can tackle these challenges through advanced analytics, working with customers to reduce their overall shipping expense.  In this section we will discuss how packaging space utilization tools work toward the goal of storing and shipping less air!
  • D3TO (DHL Dynamic Decision Transportation Optimization) – this session will explore the connection between freight savings and data analysis, learn how to weigh the business benefits of dedicated and private fleets, and see how applying freight optimization can lead to lower rates in both the truckload and LTL arenas.

Takeaways

  • Strategy to optimize warehousing functions like waving, tasking and picking.
  • Process to optimize carton sizes at a facility
  • Tactical process to optimize a complex transportation network

Workshop 2:

Urban Fulfillment Centers: A new approach for satisfying consumer demand for same-day delivery

  • As consumers increasingly demand faster delivery of purchases, retailers and consumer products companies need to move away from the hub-and-spoke distribution model and look to locate warehouses closer to the end consumer. This new model will require new thinking and new ecosystem relationships.

Workshop 3:

It’s not them, it’s you
Keeping your employees Connected, Engaged and Productive

In today’s tight labor market, it’s a struggle to attract and retain the employees we need. It seems the odds are against us, and today’s young people aren’t loyal, they lack focus and they job hop at the drop of a hat.

Or do they?

This working session will give you some insight into the real issue and provide you with actionable ideas and tools that you can put into motion right away. The good news is there are ways to do this that don’t include higher salaries and outlandish perks.
