Bastian Solutions Joins Parcel Forum 19 Speaker Line-Up

DALLAS, TX.-  Parcel Forum 19 begins Monday, October 28 at the Gaylord Texan in Dallas. During a robust line-up of presentations, Bastian Solutions will bring their expertise to the table on Wednesday, October 30 at 8 a.m., educating conference goers on the differences between in-house fulfillment versus third party logistics.

Wondering which will be best for your operation? Michael Clemens, Principal Consulting Engineer, and National Accounts Manager, Robert Humphry, of Bastian Solutions will share the stage with Melissa Curry, Director of Operations and Customs Exams Compliance at California Cartage Company (Cal Cartage), an NFI subsidiary, to weigh the options. Bastian Solutions and Cal Cartage have worked closely together to develop state-of-the-art automated warehouse solutions for Cal Cartage’s customers.

“It’s important to understand the differences between in-house fulfillment and third-party logistics to ensure the right fit for your company, particularly as you experience growth and operations become more complex,” said Curry. “From technology investments to labor challenges, there are many components that must be considered when choosing the right fulfillment option for your needs.”

Bastian Solutions will also be at booth 440 in the Regional/Final Mile Pavilion for the duration of the show highlighting fulfillment automation solutions including AutoStore – a robotic warehouse storage and retrieval solution that offers flexibility and the highest storage density on the market. AutoStore is great for third-party logistic providers looking to meet increasing customer demands.
