Driving demand via promotions, new products, and updated shelving can attract customers and keep them interested, but if you’re spending most of your time on these tactics, you could be missing a bigger strategic opportunity.
Crowdsourcing apps, same day delivery, and ecommerce trends continue to impact last mile delivery expectations. With this ever-changing landscape, cost-effective management of the last mile has become a challenge that needs a broader view.
As the evolution of retail and the way consumers purchase goods continues to change, effectively serving both consumers and retailers is a strategic challenge for both shippers and carriers.
Staying on top of shifting retailer requirements can be overwhelming—especially if you’re working with multiple retailers.
Variable and unanticipated demands often bring unique challenges to retail supply chains and transportation. That is why it is vital to work with a provider that has a deep understanding of each retailer’s supply chain goals, operations, and compliance requirements.
Many would argue that the role of transportation services within business has been changing over the past few years. I agree. But I also ask: is transportation what has really changed? Or is transportation only becoming increasingly important because of everything else that has changed?
