What You Will Learn
BlueGrace Logistics Randy Ofiara, Vice President, Enterprise Sales, will offer a short presentation followed by Q&A about:
The co-dependent relationship between retailers and consumer packaged goods (CPG) suppliers is in a state of flux.
In a market facing store closures, falling store traffic, and the shift to online shopping, thriving retailers are overhauling operations, streamlining processes and seeking efficiencies in every segment of their business.
CPG suppliers must comply with retailers’ requirements to ensure products are in-stock.
OTIF is vital, but other factors also should be considered:
Major retailers are increasingly demanding their entire operations are as sustainable as possible, which includes supplier targets.
CPG companies can leverage their 3PL partnerships to ensure their house is in order.
The key to winning and keeping big retail accounts is to find a partner who understands the technology and nuances of logistics and supply chain operations to win, and maintain these major retailer accounts.
