New US Show Covering First to Last Mile to Launch in Cincinnati, OH

By Anthony James, UKI Media Events


A new event will take place this July, focused exclusively on covering the whole parcel and e-commerce journey, from order placing to packaging, and from last mile and delivery through to returns.

While many businesses came crashing to a halt in 2020 due to the disruption caused by the global Covid-19 pandemic, the parcel fulfillment, logistics and delivery sector went into overdrive, playing a pivotal role in ensuring the world stayed connected. Parcel volumes in the US grew by nearly 40% in 2020, reaching 20 billion, with around 640 parcels shipped every second*. With parcel volumes forecast to double by 2026, the demand for innovative new technologies and solutions has never been greater. (*Pitney Bowes Shipping index)

In response, a brand new B2B expo, Package Fulfillment, Logistics and Delivery Expo, will take place at the Duke Energy Convention Center, Cincinnati, Ohio, July 13 & 14, 2022. It will focus exclusively on the future technologies, systems and services needed in the package and parcel journey from the supply chain, order picking and packing all the way through to final delivery and returns.

Visitors are expected from across North America and will include decision makers and buyers from e-retailers, fulfillment companies, shippers, 3PLs, CPGs, grocery delivery firms, couriers, home delivery companies and postal services, among many others.

The show, which is completely free to attend, will be closed to the public to ensure a strict focus on business, with a broad range of exhibitors all under one roof to ensure maximum convenience and allow visitors to get round the hall in a day before returning to their offices full of new possibilities. Over 120 exhibitors are expected, including industry leaders such as Purolator (which is also hosting a drinks reception on Day 1), Customs Clearance, Canada Post, Federal Aviation Authority, Cycleon, and RL Liquidators.


There is also a dedicated (paid for) conference, featuring presentations and panel discussions highlighting e-commerce fulfillment and shipping solutions, parcel handling and sorting technology, cutting-edge last-mile delivery and reverse logistics innovation. Held alongside the exhibition, this two-day event will welcome 80+ expert speakers from leading organizations including DHL, National Retail Federation, Postal Regulatory Commission, Reverse Logistics Association, UPS and the US Postal Service.
