Sustainability offers businesses opportunities for growth

You can’t miss the proliferation of green businesses on every level from small operators that avoids outsourcing in favor of local artisans, to big brands like Nike that promise to reduce their carbon footprint and improve working conditions for their employees. Going green is a great initiative: it helps to save the environment, and it makes customers feel good about their purchases while ensuring the local community is rewarded for their work.

The Long Tail of Inventory and Why It’s Important

The long tail is a concept established by Chris Anderson, who pointed out that the internet gave consumers choices beyond what was offered in physical stores. eCommerce offered niche markets the chance to appeal to their audience through major marketplaces likeAmazon, streaming services like Netflix, and music stores like the iTunes Music Store.

6 Tips for Maximizing Efficiency and Productivity of Warehouse Operations

As a warehouse manager, you would understand that handling warehouse operations are a massive task. One small mistake may affect the efficiency and productivity of the warehouse. You must continually implement measures to optimize various warehouse processes and improve the overall effectiveness of the operations involved. Apart from minimizing downtime and increasing productivity, it is essential to improve your supply chain. Let us look at a few tips that help in achieving the same.

Robot Trucks or Autonomous Vehicles Will Revolutionize the Supply Chain

Most supply chain professionals do not completely understand the disruption and upgrades that autonomous vehicles, specifically what I call robot trucks, will create. Most cannot get past the pitfalls and possible barriers to robot trucks. I define robot trucks with a much broader perspective. I include trucks of all sizes and even internal plant material handling equipment like fork-lifts and automatic guided vehicles (AVGs). The biggest leap is that robot trucks will learn! Many doubters just cannot get past this. Although not complete artificial intelligence (AI), robot trucks will adapt on their own, to conditions and circumstances, and build an open memory of what to do.

Transform Your Supply Chain For Omnichannel

The world is in the early stages of a global supply chain revolution. The Amazon Effect. The Internet of Things. Platform Businesses. The new supply chain will grow beyond omnichannel. It will cross into other industries and markets and will incorporate supply chains of products, information, and finance. All the elements of the New Supply Chain tie together.
