Parcel Forum ’13 Teams Up With Rider & Associates To Produce Warehousing Operations Conference And Exhibitor Pavilion

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

EventEvolution Management, Inc., producers of PARCEL Forum, is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Rider & Associates to produce a three-day warehousing- and operations-focused conference track at its upcoming PARCEL Forum ’13 slated for October 7-9 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Chicago.

“The warehousing, operations and material handling area is a natural extension of what we’ve been doing for the past 10 years. Just because they are considered small packages (<70lbs), it doesn’t mean they don’t need all of the same warehousing and material handling equipment and services as a company that ships air conditioning units, for example. Our attendees are dealing with massive amounts of inbound and outbound packages on a daily basis,” said Joel Dunkel, President, EventEvolution Management.

PARCEL Forum reached out to Susan Rider, President of Rider & Associates, to develop a three-day conference track focused on providing attendees with the latest information on Pick-to-Light, LMS software, Order Fulfillment Techniques, KPIs, Lean Logistics Strategies, Slotting and other technology advancements and management strategies essential to running and maintaining an efficient distribution center. “Susan’s background and knowledge of the parcel shipping industry are second to none. Over the years, she has been a speaker at our Forums which gives her a unique understanding of what industry professionals need. It’s a perfect fit,” explained Dunkel.

“The future is focusing on ecommerce with growth expected to more than double in the next few years. So, it’s all about shipping parcels,” explained Susan Rider. “I’m in the real world every day and understand the problems and opportunities practitioners have when it comes to delivering product. I’m excited about helping organizations to deliver product to their customers more efficiently while improving the customer experience as well as their bottom line,” continued Rider.

In addition to the new conference track, PARCEL Forum is launching its first-ever Warehousing Operations Pavilion—a dedicated area on the show floor. The goal is to showcase a handful of leading companies that can help attendees apply what they are learning in the conference.

Susan Rider is currently planning her conference sessions and pavilion. If you are interested in speaking or exhibiting, please email Susan at or call 270/324-4763. In you are interested in receiving information about attending PARCEL Forum ’13, please email or call toll-free 866/378-4991.
