The phenomenal growth of ecommerce, along with a consumer expectation of low-cost and rapid delivery, has forced retailers and other businesses to look at new options for solving the last-mile delivery challenge.
GREENWICH, Conn. (PRWEB) February 12, 2019
Point Pickup Technologies, the provider of a new and dynamic platform that solves the complex needs of same-day delivery for the enterprise, announced that its CEO Tom Fiorita will join the Logistics Panel discussion at the Stifel 2019 Transportation & Logistics Conference. Point Pickup's smart platform uniquely provides both highly scalable and standardized access for all same-day delivery options by unifying an otherwise fragmented network of drivers and eliminating much of the middle layer.
Fiorita will join other CEOs, executives and thought leaders in the transportation industry for a lively and collaborative panel discussion covering some of the latest and most pressing challenges in transportation logistics.
"The phenomenal growth of ecommerce, along with a consumer expectation of low-cost and rapid delivery, has forced retailers and other businesses to look at new options for solving the last-mile delivery challenge," said Fiorita. "By eliminating much of the cumbersome middle layer, Point Pickup is able to transform what has always been a highly fragmented approach with a smart platform, capable of precisely matching any delivery criteria with our diverse driver network made up of larger trucking vendors, independent contractors as well as drivers who are 'everyday people.' By integrating this vast network of drivers with its intelligent matching technology, Point Pickup provides reliable, repeatable and scalable service with vehicles ranging from small sedans, to larger delivery trucks."
The annual conference encompasses trucking, rail, maritime, airline parcel, freight forwarding, air freight, equipment, and transportation management, with over 60 leading public and private companies, panel discussions and presentations, and one-on-one industry meetings. The event will be held February 12-13 at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel in Miami Beach, Florida.
