Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler recently discussed how e-commerce is now a main driver of growth across retail, wholesale, and manufacturing alike. Cutler reported in Automation and Controls Today magazine that e-commerce retail sales in the US grew at nearly 15% last year, about 10 times the 1.5% growth rate for retail overall. To seize this opportunity, shippers need to integrate their e-commerce fulfillment with transportation management capabilities.
E-commerce is driving increasing complexity in logistics and more companies are learning how to build an integrated approach that enables omni-fulfillment, increasing customer service, while controlling costs.
The changes to shipping are continuously evolving, with shippers accommodating increased home delivery, drop shipments, and international customers. The opportunities are exploding, but transportation needs to have an integrated strategy, and in many cases the additional revenue growth will be offset by higher costs. A path to profitable and flexible growth is essential.
Automation & Controls Today is a well-respected international business-to-business publication highlighting advances in manufacturing, industry, and logistics.
