What You Will Learn

Call it the hyper-local DC or your neighborhood fulfillment center, the emergence of new options for meeting the consumer’s growing expectation that they will get what they want, where they want it and when they want it, is spurring the development of new models for fulfillment operations. Learn how new flexible, scalable order fulfillment technologies are enabling small, highly efficient fulfillment operations to get even closer to the customer. Think about the possibilities of locating these small logistics centers across the country and suddenly you can give the consumer new choices for instant gratification. Consumers can pick up their order from your conveniently located fulfillment center while they’re shopping or choose to receive it at home in record time. Swisslog’s A.K. Schultz will share his vision for revolutionizing the last mile of your supply chain in this informative and provocative presentation.
