    The parcel sortation distribution industry is experiencing industry demand? Is the demand from its own industry or other industries? Are the parcel industry, distibution industry, and Sortation industry the same thing?

    • Consumers are relying more on ordering items online, between the actual order and returns of these orders. The parcel industry has to focus on distribution and continue to be accurate on how they sort items.

    Thanks for the beneficial and brief knowledge you have provided, it was quite helpful for writing my business proposal however I wanted to reference your book but I couldn’t find a legitimate way. If available, please provide the citation to the book: The essential guide to choosing a sortation system.
