E-commerce and an "I-want-it-now" instant-gratification mindset are feeding the consumer craving for faster and faster delivery. Today's consumers have been rewired by digital disruption. That always-connected, tech-savvy shopper expects a seamless, faster purchasing journey, whether she's buying online and picking up in store or wants her merchandise delivered in two hours to her door.
A $2.3 trillion global e-commerce market reflects how profoundly shopper expectations have recalibrated worldwide. And it's forcing decision makers to shift to a robust omnichannel fulfillment strategy that meets the modern consumer's needs.
Innovative strategies that retailers are using include:
Next-generation supply chains will utilize robotics and automation to perform traditionally manual tasks such as picking, sorting, inspecting, storing, handling and classifying products to improve overall efficiency, worker productivity and speed to market. Some warehouses are turning to autonomous vehicles to bring merchandise to sorting and packing areas. Others are using drones and RFID for inventory management. The opportunities are seemingly limitless and include wearable technology, which enables truly hands-free, multi-modal workflows that result in greater worker efficiency and increased productivity.
