Consumers are rapidly converting to e-commerce — year-on-year Christmas sales ­figures demonstrate this, and we see that retailers are adapting to provide omni-channel offerings. Retailer suppliers are having to evolve their supply chains to meet these changing demands and are facing new challenges — an increasingly complex customer base, more sourcing locations, and a highly competitive marketplace (pushing to reduce costs and increase service levels). 


To tackle these challenges and meet market demands, we see supply-chain solutions such as near sourcing, more distribution centres or cross-dock facilities, and doing final assembly / customization ‘near customer’.
