Customers don’t stand still: Supporting Retail Supply Chain Challenges

Palmer Logistics TruckIn the past year retail industry sales growth doubled the historical average for year over year growth.

The explosion of Omni-Channel demand is drastically changing retail industry supply chain models. Today’s consumer takes a much different journey: they can visit a store one day, continue browsing on their laptop during lunch, see an ad on YouTube and make a final purchase via their iPhone. Consumers often learn of a product on social media or through an email which leads to a website visit, reading reviews, and inquiries to friends before ultimately buying.

These multiple touchpoints, coupled with strong Multi-Site Retail Construction Growth, challenges retail supply chain professionals to integrate distribution and delivery of product and fixtures to accommodate all of the different methods of shopping and facility growth. Retailers must develop strategies that give them the ability to ship anything to or from anywhere quickly.
