Profitable Fulfillment: Orchestrating Multi-Enterprise Networks to Profitably Serve Diverse Customer Demands
Profitable demand fulfillment remains a challenge for retail and manufacturing supply chains. Success - or even survival - depends on the ability to serve customers profitably in ways they expect to be served. This means doing everything from massive shipments to micro-fulfillment, from high velocity to slow movers. It includes strategies to ship from anywhere, fulfillment innovations, tailoring for channel and potentially per customer, automated sourcing, dynamic inventory management, creative postponement strategies at each stage, last mile optimization, and more…while doing it all profitably.
