Consumer Goods Logistics

Modern consumer goods logistics have to simultaneously bridge between lean processes and growing service complexity. Is your logistics cost-efficient and value-adding? ​

Rising service demands and efficient fulfillment​

Today, we are moving from next-day shipments for e-commerce to same-day shipments.​ To make same-day shipments happen, retailers need to be as geographically close to the customer as possible. In addition, they will need robust systems that look at all the different distribution points and orchestrate the most cost-effective place and logistics to meet that service level.​
