Distribution and Fulfillment Strategies to Thrive in the Face of New World Challenges
The rise in eCommerce continues to set faster and more complex delivery standards putting strain on distribution centers (DCs) to meet customer demands. In addition, DC managers are faced with deploying new guidelines aimed at improving workplace safety and employee (and consumer) confidence. As a lifeline of essential goods to retailers, many fulfillment operations were unprepared for the recent surge in demand and rollout of new protocols.
To keep pace with today’s demands, DCs must adopt a comprehensive approach to safety while supporting the need for increased productivity. eCommerce companies are looking for innovative ways to optimize operations with advanced automation technologies and fulfillment capabilities that improve capacity, productivity and safety in this hyper-competitive, complex marketplace.
