Live demo preview: Find the right final-mile size with OneRail

As part of FreightWaves’ The Future of Supply Chain event, OneRail will be demonstrating its final-mile software that matches the best courier option for a shipment.

Northwest Arkansas isn’t the typical location for a bevy of software demonstrations in front of thousands of people, but there is a first time for everything. After you hit up some breweries and a nice lunch, swing back by the Rogers Convention Center for some fun.

A major attraction of FreightWaves’ The Future of Supply Chain live event in Northwest Arkansas on May 9-10 will be the 7-minute live demos. Here’s a preview of one of those demos.

Final mile is the problem child for just about any business. Fulfillment costs are rising, capacity is nonexistent, and carriers are starting to cap the amount of shipments large retailers can have. Typically final-mile logistics is a sunk cost for any shipper. What if it didn’t always have to be that way? Would turning e-commerce deliveries with full visibility and full TMS integration into a profitable aspect of the business be attractive?
