Together with Pratt & Whitney, UPS is changing the way companies think about logistics and supply chains. Suppliers of Pratt & Whitney now send plane engine parts to UPS's new facility in New Hampshire, where specially trained UPS workers inspect them to ensure airworthiness. By outsourcing this work to UPS, Pratt & Whitney free up space in their own facilities – which creates more room for engine manufacturing and designing.

Across the country, businesses, government agencies and other organizations that operate vehicle fleets turn to natural gas vehicles (NGVs) for their transportation needs. Natural gas is one of the cleanest, most affordable fuels available today, and vehicle makers offer more NGVs every year. UPS, the world's largest package-delivery and logistics company, operates one of the nation's largest NGV fleets. Its iconic brown delivery trucks are instantly recognizable, but what many people don't know is that UPS is truly committed to the environment. The company has used alternative-fuel vehicles including NGVs to transport packages for years, and in 2014 most of the new tractor-trailers UPS puts on the road will be powered by natural gas. Longtime employee J.D. Baker, who works at the UPS facility in Ontario, California -- one of the first UPS facilities to adopt NGVs -- says their NGVs are reliable, get great mileage and provide plenty of power on the region's notorious mountain roads like The Grapevine and the Tejon Pass. "They're also a great conversation piece," J.D. told us. "People in the community see 'Natural Gas Vehicle' on the side and ask us about it." By using more natural gas, UPS reduces emissions, while taking advantage of an affordable fuel that powers a massive delivery fleet traveling thousands of miles every week. In this video, J.D. explains why he's proud of his company's commitment to the environment as well as the communities it serves and how NGVs are an important way of showing that commitment. Using natural gas to deliver for America? That's something to think about. For more information about the positive impact of natural gas, visit http://www.thinkaboutit.org.

Cost Saving Tips for Dimensional Weight Shipping. More info: http://datexcorp.com/1/dimensional-weight-shipping Companies using FedEx and UPS will be affected by the upcoming change in shipping rate calculation. You can influence how much this impacts your business. In this video we will share a few tips on how to reduce the financial impacts of dimensional weight shipping rates. While this change may seem as if there are stormy times ahead, it is also a great opportunity to take a deep dive into your business and make some improvements. One way you can reduce the financial impact of dimensional weight shipping is by optimizing your packaging. This will reduce the amount of large package fees your logistics provider charges. Large packages are defined as those which have a combined length and girth of over 130 inches. Avoid these fees by eliminating excess use of packing materials and unnecessarily large containers. Your business can also reduce associated shipping cost by providing package dimensions while manifesting. This allows you to properly determine shipping fees for your customers and reduce charge-back fees from your carrier for package size discrepancies. Testing out new packaging options is also a great way to optimize your packaging processes and reduce shipping costs. Now that shipping rates are based on volume rather than simply weight, replacing small boxes with padded envelopes or using more size appropriate box sizes can significantly reduce costs. Using cartonization software can result in significant savings. Cartonization software works with your warehouse management system and executes during the shipping process. It determines if the shipment will be split into one or more containers and then determines the correct cartonization strategy. The system considers the dimensions, weight, fragility, position requirements and other factors when evaluating the proper container, placement and packaging materials. Using cartonization can produce dramatic savings in labor and materials for your business and result in decreased order returns and damages. Another useful software tool is shipping management software, sometimes referred to as manifesting software. Shipping management software integrates parcel information with carriers. The software provides current rates for carriers such as UPS, FedEx and others. Using shipping management software, your company will be able to print out carrier compliant labels and documentation and have instant access to tracking information. Your employees will be able to use the shipping management software search for the lowest rates and method of shipment. This is a great tool to have in your arsenal to combat increasing shipping rates, fees and delays. Whether you choose to use these tips, cartonization and shipping management software or other means, your business can have more control over shipping fees.

International Business Symposium features prominent experts Delta State University’s College of Business proudly presents the ninth annual International Business Symposium beginning at 9 a.m. April 4 at the Jobe Hall Auditorium. This year’s program features top-ranking international business professionals, whose knowledge and experience is renowned and spans the globe. Senior business officials will provide a unique look at trends in the business world. “This year’s event will be amped up,” said Cooper Johnson, event coordinator and chair of Entrepreneurship in Business Technology at Delta State. “We have President LaForge helping us bring together the campus, community and guests. We are seeking to involve more than just the College of Business and showcase the excellence at Delta State.” The symposium is sponsored by David and Sherry Abney, Delta natives who currently reside in Atlanta. Abney is the Chief Operating Officer for United Parcel Service, the world’s largest package delivery company. As COO, he holds responsibility for UPS logistics, sustainability and engineering. In these roles, Abney directs all facets of the UPS transportation network serving more than 220 countries and territories. A 1976 graduate, Abney studied business administration at Delta State and was named the 2007 Outstanding Alumnus of the Year. To this day, he serves on the Delta State University Alumni Foundation Board of Directors. Through UPS, he has traveled the world on business, but his Delta roots are forever ingrained. “Sherry and I wanted to do something meaningful for the Delta. By bringing global leaders onto campus and sharing their experiences with students, I believe we’ll be able to expand Delta State students’ horizons in how they see and prepare for their futures,” Abney said in a previous Delta State interview. Also joining Abney as a featured lecturer is William C. Bell ‘82, president and Chief Executive Officer of Casey Family Programs. The organization is the nation’s largest operating foundation, whose work is focused on safely reducing the need for foster care and building communities of hope for all of America’s children and families. Bell has more than 30 years of experience in the human services field. Prior to becoming president and CEO of Casey Family Programs, he served as the foundation’s executive vice president for child and family services, providing strategic direction to nine field offices and leading a staff working directly with young people from the public child welfare system. Bell was named the 2012 Outstanding Alumnus of the Year by Delta State and was inducted into its Alumni Hall of Fame and Omicron Delta Kappa, a national leadership honor society. Also presenting is Dwight C. Herlong, a 1991 graduate of Delta State’s marketing program. Herlong joined Google in 2013 and is currently responsible for global store operations and logistics. He also spent four years on the Statesmen football team and was a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. Prior to joining Google, Herlong spent 22 years working for multiple Fortune 100 companies in the Retail Supply Chain space. These companies included Best Buy, Macy’s and T Mobile USA.

Please provide a brief background of yourself? My background is in engineering and operations. I received a bachelor's degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh and followed that up by earning an MBA with a finance concentration from GA State University. I began my career in transportation, working for Yellow Freight System in their management trainee program before progressing into their Industrial Engineering department. I then moved into the Logistics world working for GA Pacific Corporation and UPS-SCS prior to joining Kenco. Most of my career I've worked in positions related to engineering, operations, pricing, or solutions design. I first moved into a sales role when joining Kenco. I have been here about 8.5 years. Half of that time was spent in operations managing the network Kenco operates for one of our largest customers, and the other half of that time has been in sales. Kenco is the largest, privately held 3PL in N. America. We are a vertically integrated logistics provider -- meaning that we are a one-stop shop for N. American Logistics. The services we offer include value added distribution and fulfillment, comprehensive transportation management, material handling equipment solutions, real estate management, and systems solutions.

Amazon.com Inc has installed more than 15,000 robots across 10 U.S. warehouses, a move that promises to cut operating costs by one-fifth and get packages out the door more quickly in the run-up to Christmas. The orange 320-pound (145 kg) robots, which scoot around the floor on wheels, show how Amazon has adopted technology developed by Kiva Systems, a robotics company it bought for $775 million USD in 2012. Amazon showcased to media on Sunday ahead of Cyber Monday, the biggest online shopping day of the year. The robots are designed to help the leading U.S. online retailer speed the time it takes to deliver items to customers and better compete with brick-and-mortar stores, where the bulk of Americans still do their shopping. The robots also may help Amazon avoid the mishaps of last year's holiday season, when a surge of packages overwhelmed shipping and logistics company UPS and delayed the arrival of Christmas presents around the globe. Amazon offered shipping refunds and $20 gift cards to compensate customers. Thanks for comment, subscribe to updates http://goo.gl/VN5WVg Follow us Twitter @newsdailyplanet
