Smarter Receiving: Technology for Inbound Package Management

Shipping and receiving grow increasingly complex with the scale of an operation, but complex doesn’t have to mean complicated. There are intelligent software solutions that track inbound package and asset from arrival to delivery.

Global parcel shipping volume hit 159 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach 200 billion by 2025. Parcels per person have doubled in the past five years, and the number of parcels shipped is a mind-blowing 5,000 per second.

Package management is critical to smooth, day-to-day business operations. The sheer volume of parcel deliveries can quickly overwhelm the mail center. How can your business manage packages and ensure nothing gets lost in the shuffle? Pitney Bowes has you covered.
