Amazon’s 2017 acquisition of Whole Foods, and Walmart’s move into the online grocery business are good examples of business disruption, bucking traditional business models sending ripples across the supply chain impacting how distributors and manufacturers operate their businesses to stay competitive. Enterprises that have made the digital transition are more flexible and customer centric, thus keeping product margins and staying competitive.
In this session, we cover the topic of logistics and warehouse management by looking at two customer examples:
- A Florida based manufacturer which implemented barcode scanning to support the automation and rapid flow of products through their manufacturing and warehouse facilities
- A Mexican food distributor who needed to implement GS1 industry standards, plus FEFO picking stock rotation, combined with customer based shelf life to ensure higher levels of customer service and to increase profits by reducing food waste.
