Total Retail: Proactively Adapt Shipping Strategies to Build Fulfillment Independence
How can retailers effectively navigate peak season to better execute parcel shipping and build fulfillment independence?
Retailers face another challenging holiday peak season with limited space and higher costs thanks to increased shipping challenges and carrier capacity issues driven by the rapid growth in e-commerce over the last year. Unfortunately, it’s already too late to adequately prepare, but retailers can still find ways to effectively mitigate upcoming peak season concerns while also planning for future challenges ahead of other peak periods.
In a contributed article for Total Retail, Logistyx Technologies Vice President of Sales Aimee Tierney discusses how retailers can effectively navigate peak season by overhauling practices and adapting strategies to better execute parcel shipping workflows and create greater fulfillment independence. Aimee explores different strategies – including omnichannel distribution, real-time analytics, and diversification of transportation networks – that can help retailers infuse resilience and business agility into shipping operations.
“Improved order fulfillment efficiency gives retailers the freedom to be nimbler and offer customers more flexibility. It’s important to prepare now to capitalize on new supply chain opportunities and navigate unpredictable conditions, whether during peak season or other supply chain events.”
