As online shopping evolves, so does the area of ecommerce package-delivery. Postal leaders will gather near Washington DC next month to explore the "B2Me consumer empowerment phenomenon" and how it impacts the changing global postal ecosystem.

In its 6th year, PostalVision 2020 will be held March 15-16, 2016 at The Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City, Virginia. Speakers will include top executives from the US Postal Service, US Senate, US Dept. of State, USPS Office of Inspector General, US Government Accounting Office, and the National Association of Letter Carriers.

PostalVision will focus on how the B2Me movement is changing the postal ecosystem and placing more demands on supply chain partners to meet consumer demands.

The event also features a PostalVision 2020 Innovation Showcase that will include presentations from companies such as the ShipBob mobile app, the Workhorse drone, and other innovative shipping tools.

John Callan, managing director of Ursa Major Associates and Founder of the PostalVision 2020 Initiative, said one of the foundations of the PostalVision initiative is to look at change and growth in the postal ecosystem and help showcase new businesses, new ideas, and new technologies.
