What You Will Learn

E-commerce has morphed from a shopping method to a lifestyle. Today, everyone can place online orders for everything from ketchup to kayaks and expect those items to be delivered for free to their door in two days or less. These changing consumer behaviors are creating new supply chain realities and are challenging fulfillment operations and complicating efforts to employ sustainable practices. But companies may be looking in the wrong place when it comes to sustainable solutions in the packing operation. Sustainability isn’t just about the use of bio-based or recyclable materials. It’s mainly about eliminating waste, which can take the form of damage, decreased labor productivity, and skyrocketing shipping costs. Within a fulfillment operation, find out how making the right choices at the right stages can cause a ripple effect of avoidance that’s more powerful than any single sustainable material choice.
 

Key Takeaways

• Learn how right-sizing automation can make fulfillment operations more sustainable.
• Discover ways to incorporate operational efficiencies that lead to more sustainable practices.
• Find the hidden drains many operations leaders miss: cost, time, material, environmental.
