E-commerce is here to stay. Some of the fastest growing companies of the past decade are those which have tapped the Internet to identify new customers, strengthen existing customer relationships, and drive the bottom line by streamlining business processes. Regardless of the approach to web design and user interface, organizations intending to leverage E-commerce must modify their existing supply chain to align with the unique demands of E-commerce.
You are invited to attend a dinner program on Thursday, October 17th, for an event focused on E-Commerce Supply Chain. This program will feature Steve Hewett, Vice President of Logistics Services for Christopher Morgan Fulfillment. Steve has partnered with many organizations to leverage E-commerce to grow their business and establish the required supply chain provisions.
For some industry sectors that have traditionally been brick and mortar, tapping into E-commerce has meant the difference between thriving and shuttering (think consumer electronics). In other industries aside from retail, E-commerce has reduced the barrier of entry for offering new products and services.
Within the Supply Chain, practitioners sometimes struggle with the added complexity brought upon by E-commerce. Traditional facility layouts, systems, equipment, and processes don’t always support the flexibility and responsiveness required. Our speaker will share his experiences, and showcase the strategies and tools used to deliver winning results for both his company and their customers. After the presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
