What You Will Learn

With staggering e-commerce sales growth, expected to be more than $500 billion by 2020, moving products safety and efficiently in the consumer goods supply chain is critical to CPGs and retailers alike. In addition, consumers are also expecting products within shorter delivery windows, many times in 2 days, which is changing distributions centers as we know it. DCs are becoming more regional and multi-purpose, in order to fulfill online orders faster than ever. Consumer product goods (CPG) companies and retailers are seeking ways to get product to consumers faster than ever, while minimizing order picking time and improving pick accuracy of online orders. Learn how reusable totes, pallets and mobile solutions can reduce touches, interface seamlessly with automation, deliver efficiency and decrease waste throughout the entire supply chain.
