The 14th annual Parcel Summit will take place May 15-16, 2019 at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, TN. Executives from the largest retail, e-commerce, manufacturing and life sciences brands attend to keep a pulse on the parcel industry. This intimate event allows for an interactive format that incorporates education on the latest trends with candid discussions that address hot button issues. The agenda features education that's focused around four main areas: industry trends, best practices, GMT innovation, and the Parcel Benchmark Survey Results.
No other industry parcel event brings together the largest parcel shippers to collaborate on their unique challenges and opportunities in today's rapidly changing parcel landscape. The Summit provides an opportunity for attendees to learn about the latest parcel trends and strategies specifically impacting mega-volume shippers. It offers a forum to network with other industry executives to understand common challenges and share best practices. The event features live audience polling to leverage peer-to-peer learning and has a focus on market research and original data.
The Parcel Summit is an invitation only event since the content is geared specifically towards mega volume shippers. If you are interested in attending, please request an invitation.
“I would recommend the Parcel Summit to others. What was most valuable was verifying the trends of our industry and seeing, discussing, and exchanging thoughts on how to most effectively respond in order to stay relevant in our market.” – Ray Shearer, Transportation Director, Thirty-One Gifts
“The Summit brings "Mega Parcel Shippers" together to discuss what they care about. Too many conferences are focused on the smaller market and/or LTL and don't add much value.” – Vince Atkin, Director of Logistics, Overstock.com
“I thought all the presenters were very well educated in their presentation, provided great content and got the audience involved. I would highly recommend this Parcel Summit.” – Dan Regan, Corporate Transportation Manager, Barnes & Noble
“I learned a lot about Green Mountain Technology, the current trends and market expectations. I was able to meet a lot of new peers and potential partners. It was large enough to have a variety of shippers, and providers to network with, but small enough that I had more of a chance to meet most everyone there.” –Nicole O’Neal, Sr. Manager of Domestic Transportation, Carter’s
“The ability to talk informally with knowledgeable peers who many times are facing the same issues, is invaluable. Conversation tends to stimulate the thought process, and solutions are the result!” -Joe Bobko, VP of Transportation, Boxed
“What was most valuable was networking with likeminded retailers and the content covering the latest strategies and trends in the market. I would definitely recommend the Parcel Summit to others.” -Chris Fall, Sr. Manager Omnichannel Logistics/Supply Chain, Petco

"Like previous GMT Summits, I had an awesome time at the 2015 Summit. Rating the experience on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 the best, I’d say the experience rates at a 9.5. It exposed me to rapid changes in the parcel industry. The Summit introduced Regional Carrier trends and how it is taking form. The carrier panel overview was very beneficial as well. Yes, I would definitely recommend the Summit." -Terrie Dokes, Senior Specialist, Transportation, Pfizer
