Given the continued rapid growth of Consumers wanting to purchase Anything-Anywhere-Anytime, increasing constraints on available labor and pressure for “Speed and Agility”, the overall supply chain dynamics for modern day retail have changed dramatically. We will look at realistic advancements that we can expect in the use of pop-up DCs and Store fulfillment in the coming years in order to provide the service levels and speed that consumers are demanding. Given these advancements and the dynamic future of fulfillment we will also discuss the implications on planning, product flow and inventory management that supply chain leaders must be prepared to address.
