A Fork in the Road: Distribution Paths for a Digital World
As e-commerce retailers strive to meet the service expectations of their customers, many struggle to determine the best way to get their products to market. Before choosing a path forward, three key questions should be answered: What are my order volume metrics and customer service requirements? How does my current fulfillment operations perform and could automation potentially improve my service levels. Does it makes sense to self-distribute or should I investigate the services of a third party logistics supplier? In this seminar e-commerce retailers will learn high level guidelines for answering these questions and determining a path forward.

Using Metrics & SC Systems to Drive Performance Improvement
Continued refinement of supply chain metrics offers a variety of options for monitoring, improving and sustaining performance. There are myriad warehousing benchmarks and standards, but which ones will best serve your needs and how do you use them to set targets, measure results, meet service goals and contain costs? How do you assure a proper balance between key performance indicators (KPI’s) to avoid negatively impacting performance in one area by overemphasizing another? How can metrics be used to justify investments in people, equipment and systems while simultaneously building employee support, commitment and morale?
