What’s Going On?
The Global E-Commerce Leaders Forum (known as GELF) has been bringing e-commerce leaders together since 2014 combining breakout sessions, deep-dive workshops, keynotes and showcases. Last year, GELF was hosted in New York bringing together leaders from online retailers and global brands selling direct-to-consumer in markets around the globe.
For 2018, the event will take place in the Director’s Guild of America (DGA) theater located on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. On Wednesday, February 7th, there’s estimated to be more than 100 attendees networking for a day of innovation and exciting new announcements such as evolving cross-border platforms and how to better localize customers’ experiences.
A.J. Hernandez, President and CEO of SkyPostal, Inc. is already prepping for the event:
“This is a great opportunity for brands and services to be developed in the eyes of the online retail sector. For SkyPostal, it presents an opportunity for us to represent the Latin American market and speak to how attendees can take advantage of what this market has to offer.”
SkyPostal is pleased to not only be sponsoring the event, but have A.J. speaking in the Customer Experience/Engagement panel about order and post-order fulfillment -- with other well-known names in the industry like Daniel Head, eCommerce Marketing and Operations at TOMS and Amy Morgan, Senior Product Manager at Avalara -- where he’ll be covering the do’s and don'ts of cross-border transactions and international logistics as well as pros and cons of post and express delivery services in emerging markets.
When asked what people can expect him to bring to the conversation, A.J. responds:
“I attended and sponsored GELF 2 years ago, and found that SkyPostal could fill a need for the audience. This year, I hope to share my nearly 30 years of experience in cross-border delivery services from transport to final mile delivery. I also hope that I can raise awareness of how SkyPostal can help businesses enter into, and navigate through, the Latin American market.”
Afterward, you can do a meet and greet with A.J. at the SkyPostal table located in the exposition area, which will provide attendees the opportunity to learn about SkyPostal’s Latin American shipping and delivery solutions.
“I’ll be providing information on how to get reliable and cost effective delivery of parcels to Latin America, providing a simplified explanation of complex market issues such as customs clearance and import taxes/duties. So, if you have more specific questions that I was unable to answer for you during the panel, I’ll be available to answer them then.” - A.J. Hernandez
You’ll also be able to get an inside look at the technology behind SkyPostal’s efficient and secure shipping solutions including TechSync and TechBase.
To give you a preview of what’s to come from SkyPostal:
TechSync is the parcel delivery solution for companies that want the benefits of real-time tracking and label creation for their Latin American volume. Utilizing a simple yet robust API integration, orders can be handled seamlessly and customers can have up-to-date visibility on their package movement.
TechBase is a parcel delivery solution for companies seeking a simple interface that will allow SkyPostal to handle their Latin American shipments, providing tracking for their customers while using minimal IT time and resources. Utilizing our user-friendly merchant portal, you can stay focused on selling while SkyPostal takes care of logistics.
When asked why people should attend this event, A.J. states:
“This is a gathering of top retailers who have already begun to sell cross-border. You don’t want to be left behind in these emerging markets, and you can always improve your processes and strategies. This is a rare opportunity to meet with these individuals and similar retailers to share international experiences and learn about how other players are handling their international orders. Trust me, you’re not going to want to miss it.”
