Amazon has changed consumer expectations. One or two-day shipping is no longer a luxury, it is now crucial to winning and keeping customers. How are retailers without Amazon’s 90+ North American warehouses supposed to compete? How can wholesale distributors keep up with ever-increasing expectations? And more specifically, how do these new consumer requirements change distribution network design and management? The answers to these questions require rethinking the nature of distribution networks and the traditionally static warehouses that define them.
This webcast will address these questions and challenges, and will examine the economics of emerging dynamic warehouse strategies that are starting to change the way logistics professionals think about creating competitive advantage through their distribution capabilities.
