Omni-channel, multi-channel strategies, solutions, practices, etc.
There were so many interesting developments in 2018 and more to come this year. Here we take a look at what’s happening in autonomous supply chains, omni-channel delivery, AI/machine learning, blockchain for supply chain, checkoutless stores, and self-sovereign ID.
Amazon subsidizes their fulfillment costs by billions of dollars annually. This has set expectations for free or very low cost shipping, not just for consumers, but businesses as well. Here we discuss ways to integrate channels more effectively, continually drive out costs, and increase efficiencies in fulfillment and operations tom compete in today’s world.
Here we discuss applications of Trade DaaS including ERP/GTM integration, supply chain risk management, sourcing optimization, supplier discovery, price discovery, total landed cost, compliant duty optimization, should-cost modeling, ecommerce, real-time denied party screening, competitive intelligence, lead generation, and KYC.
Amazon (and others) have profoundly raised customer expectations for frictionless commerce, fast-free delivery, and nearly infinite selection. This impacts not just retailers, but manufacturers and distributors as well. Here we explore three examples of companies thriving in this competitive environment by differentiating with unique services and experiences.
At this year’s SuiteWorld conference, we heard about new developments and numerous customer examples showing how NetSuite enabled their growth.
Ecommerce, drones, IoT, Blockchain, crowdsourcing, and enterprises’ ever-expanding requirements for logistics services make for an evolving and exciting transportation sector.
Advanced pool distribution is not just about lower cost fulfillment. It can have a transformative impact for retailers struggling to meet today’s store and omnichannel fulfillment requirements.
Advanced pool distribution providers often offer a rich set of value-add services that provide retailers with considerable flexibility, precise control, and the ability to steadily and incrementally ramp up and forward position inventories to meet surge requirements during peaks.
As the lines between manufacturers, wholesale distributors, and retailers are increasingly blurred, it impacts the basis of competitiveness, business models, processes, services, and systems. In this series, we explore what happens when businesses ‘cross over’ to become a combination of manufacturer/distributor/retailer.
Pool distribution is a key part of the equation for retailers trying to achieve excellence in store replenishment and omnichannel fulfillment, at the lowest costs. In part one of this series, we examine how pool distribution works and summarize the key difference between advanced vs. basic pool distribution.
