Manifest Vegas 2024
Catch our CEO at Manifest this year, along with 250+ other speakers!
Manifest is here, and this year there are over 250 speakers! Our CEO Farrukh Mahboob is participating in a panel discussion about logistics digitization and, in this category alone, there are 24 different sessions to attend.
At PackageX we believe that digitization is everything. Without digitizing operations in your supply chain, you can’t leverage the latest technology. And without the latest technology, you fail to meet customer expectations.
Are customer expectations too high? Possibly. But in the meantime they’re here to stay. Customers want faster shipping, free shipping, and immediate resolutions when a package goes missing or a delivery is delayed.
The panel discussion Farrukh is participating in deals directly with this issue, and there are other great panel discussions and presentations about digitization. So our advice is this: instead of trying to attend EVERY speaker track and wear yourself thin (Manifest should be fun!) focus on a specific theme for Manifest and attend sessions around that theme.
There are many themes to choose from — robotics, drones, cybersecurity, safety, sourcing, sustainability, the list goes on! — but if you want to improve digitization, below are some sessions worth attending.
For a full list of sessions in the digitization category, check out our blog post.
