Online retailing has changed. Before, e-commerce companies fulfilled consumer demand from a small number of large-scale warehouses that carried similar catalog of items. Inventory for low-volume products were maintained in a few locations as possible while maintaining service levels that met customer expectations.
Today, consumers are demanding more than just low prices. Consumers are also demanding that products ordered be delivered quickly. Demand for quick day delivery are now pushing retailers to experiment with new business and operations models. Notably, known retailers such as Amazon.com, Nordstrom, and Macy’s are redesigning their distribution networks. Retailers have recognized that the terms of competition have changed.
There is now an increasing need to invest on real-time sales and inventory information, coupled with advanced analytics to accommodate fluctuations and changes in the business environment quickly. This is what we call putting Agility in Supply Chain Network Design or Distribution Agility.
This presentation provides a comprehensive understanding of distribution agility and the 3-phase process of effective putting agility in supply chain network design.
1. Reinvent Network Design Thinking
2. Centralize Inventory and Logistics Data
3. Build Inventory and Pricing into Fulfillment Decisions
Adapting Agility in Supply Chain Network Design will lessen organizations need for major adjustments even when inventory costs factors fluctuate.
