For Immediate Release:
Memphis, Tenn., June 6, 2016 – Green Mountain Technology, a leading provider of Parcel Spend Management solutions, has released “The Impact of Brand Strategy on Parcel Transportation: 2016 Annual Benchmark Report” to customers and survey participants.
“Our customers desired high level, thought leadership data as it relates to parcel strategies and GMT has been uniquely positioned to provide that,” said Mike Williams, Senior VP of Operations at GMT. “In service to our customers, this Benchmark focuses on emerging trends in retail brand strategy and impacts on order fulfillment and parcel transportation.”
The survey was administered by Cleveland Research, netting nearly 80 responses from some of the largest brands in the U.S. The results of this survey yielded relevant and valuable data for parcel shippers who are continually optimizing their parcel network and strive to be a high performing shipper.

Executives from the largest retail, e-commerce, manufacturing and life sciences brands gathered to learn about the impact of brand strategy on parcel transportation. Data from the Benchmark formed the core content of the sessions.
