Re­tail

From ever growing client and product range requirements, to new online channels, to competitors demanding innovative solutions in omni-channel business, the retail industry is always changing. Optimizing the supply chain, processes, and network structures, employing reverse logistics, and increasing the degree of automation are becoming ever more important in the competition for customers. Meeting these challenges requires a holistic approach.

Trends & Challenges

  • Omnichannel concepts, such as the combination of a proprietary POS and direct delivery services, have become established in the market.
  • Customer demands for wide product ranges are growing, requiring optimal supply chains for each including home delivery, pick up, and store sale.
  • Optimal availability, logistics costs, and logistics services are decisive factors in competition.
  • Combined warehouse planning for stationary and online retail requires an optimal warehouse design with adequate automation.
  • Simulation helps you improve logistics solutions and developing optimal operating strategies. They should be fully integrated into the planning process.
