By: Shippo | March 3, 2017

Shippo Summit 2017

Join us for the inaugural Shippo Summit: Shipping as a Competitive Advantage on April 28th in San Francisco.

While shipping is an essential part of every ecommerce business, it’s often thought of as a backroom operation and cost-center. However, successful companies have managed to harness shipping to drive sales, increase brand awareness, and grow their business.

At the Shippo Summit, our goal is to show you how shipping can be used across all business operations. We will provide you with actionable strategies and insights that you can implement using your existing shipping infrastructure.

Some topics we will be covering:

Shipping as Part of the Marketing Toolbox

Shipping is the #1 concern for customers at checkout. In this talk, we will share different tactics ecommerce businesses can use to leverage the power of shipping to drive sales, decrease cart abandonment, increase order value and more.

Optimizing Warehouse Operations

Creating an optimized warehouse layout and operational flow will make a huge difference in your fulfillment efficiency. In this talk, we will be discussing best warehouse organization practices.

Returns as a Competitive Advantage

When it comes to creating a seamless experience for customers, often neglect returns. This talk will go over different strategies and tactics for handling e-commerce returns.

Throughout the day, Shippo’s product, engineering, and account management teams will also be available for one-on-one conversations. This is the perfect opportunity to get specific help, training, and provide feedback for Shippo.

Come learn how you can turn shipping into your competitive advantage and network with other e-commerce businesses. We are excited to see you there!
