What You Will Learn

A record number of stores closed in 2017. But that doesn’t mean consumers have stopped shopping – retail sales grew about 4%, with much of that growth from e-commerce. That shift has many in retail, fashion and consumer products focusing on business models that get their products directly to consumers faster, cheaper, and more efficiently than ever before. It’s brought new focus on last mile delivery, and we’ve seen lots of ideas for how to solve it – autonomous vehicles, drones, subscription services, and even Uber, to name a few. But these new delivery methods cost money – an expense that must be offset somewhere else in the supply chain. And if products aren’t positioned in places you easily can ship from, it doesn’t matter how good your last mile capabilities are. The last mile is only a fraction of the end-to-end supply chain, and in order to truly solve for last-mile delivery, businesses increasingly have to consider enhancing their capabilities upstream. In this session we’ll explore how enhancing connectivity and visibility across the global supply network, streamlining the procure-to-pay process, and making sure every aspect of the supply chain, from stores and warehouses all the way upstream to carriers and factories are aligned can provide your end consumers the best delivery experiences possible.
