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.
