What You Will Learn

In the last few years, companies big and small have been under enormous pressure to create supply chains that provide a distinct customer service advantage over their competitors at the lowest cost possible to the company. With enormous cost pressures from increasing wage costs, underqualified employees, and uncertainties in global markets, more companies than ever are choosing to create high tech warehouse as a cornerstone to their supply chain network strategy. While automation has many advantages, a poorly planned and executed distribution center strategy can hamper a company’s ability to compete in their market. A properly executed strategy will bring a competitive advantage to a company and this session will provide market proven strategies and cautions when designing the distribution center of the future.

Key Takeaways

- The strategies that must be implemented to bring about the distribution of the future within an organization.

- Ground rules a company must follow or situations to avoid when analyzing their network and coming up with expected and alternative designs for their distribution centers.
