What You Will Learn

The fast-paced e-commerce sector is showing no signs of slowing down. Rather, it’s speeding up, and at a rapid rate. In fact, according to Material Handling & Logistics’ “U.S. Roadmap 2.0,” the combination of e-commerce and relentless global competition provides consumers more options to buy than ever before, a trend that will continue. The impact of e-commerce — as well as SKU growth and just-in-time delivery demands — requires additional complexities as to how manufacturing facilities and distribution centers operate. Not only do consumers have more purchasing options now, but there also are more warehousing solutions than ever before.
