NEPTUNE, N.J., Oct. 1, 2014 - Marathon Data Systems, a leading provider of Software-as-a Service (SaaS) solutions for the field service and transportation and logistics industries, opened registration for the invitation-only "Conquer the Last Mile" Conference. The three-day event brings together industry leaders to explore the growing challenges faced by transportation and logistics companies today, namely same-day delivery execution, "white glove" delivery challenges and increasing efficiency in delivery's last mile.
The "Conquer the Last Mile" Conference offers a mix of interactive workshops, networking events and presentations from leading thinkers and practitioners in the logistics industry. These best-in-class suppliers and operators will lead discussions on leveraging the latest technology offerings/solutions to meet these new industry demands, including classroom sessions focusing on how the latest technology can dramatically improve fleet efficiency and on time performance. Workshops provide hands-on opportunities to see exactly how the latest software applications from Viamente can drive these business improvements. Keynote speakers include Mike Brennan, COO of Peapod, and Adrian Gonzalez, Founder of Talking Logistics and President of Adelante SCM.
"The transportation and logistics industry has entered a challenging but extremely exciting time as rising customer expectations affect every part of the supply chain in industries spanning retail, manufacturing, package and food delivery and field service," said Chris Sullens, President and CEO of Marathon Data Systems. "Powerful cloud-based, mobile-first applications and robust APIs, like Viamente's route planner and routing engine API, make cost effective and efficient execution of same-day and 'white glove' delivery services a reality for small, medium and enterprise level logistics providers. The 'Conquer the Last Mile' conference brings together leaders in the space to help take these technology solutions to the next level."
