What You Will Learn

Today’s distribution centers are struggling to keep pace with the explosion of modern e-commerce. At the same time, customers expect delivery to be fast, accurate and ideally, free. While there are a lot of opportunities for DCs that can keep up with this changing market, one of the biggest challenges is a shortage of labor. Even when you can find good people, about 60 percent of supply chain jobs need skills which only 20 percent of the workforce can provide. What’s more, a lot of distribution center jobs are repetitive and injury-prone. The result is low worker satisfaction, high turnover and rising retraining costs. But what if you could use your limited labor pool more efficiently?
