OMNI CHANNEL LOGISTICS
Consumer buying behavior is changing drastically with growing adoption of the Internet, smartphones, and handheld devices worldwide, especially in Asia. The surge in Internet sales and in consumers using different channels to evaluate products, order, pay, collect, and return their purchases has driven companies to investigate the omni-channel approach.
Retailers and manufacturers in all industries will need to adapt to this new reality to thrive. From being an emerging trend, omni-channel will be a key requirement in the future, presenting challenges and significant opportunities to all businesses. We invite you to join us on a journey to discover its potential!
Logistics is a key enabler for omni-channel, and the success of the omni-channel approach hinges on how businesses adapt to evolving consumer journeys. They must move away from channel-based structures and networks, and seek to personalize their engagement with consumers.
