Digital rise, relocation, click and collect increase… all these factors make it crucial for brands to rethink their supply chain to gain in agility and scalability.
Because it is at the core of the operational and economic performance, supply chain has become a critical challenge in the transformation of the retail industry. It must be quickly reconfigured to support the fast-paced evolutions of the industry and allow its key players to gain time and efficiency.
Retailers have an opportunity to rethink the supply chain today to meet tomorrow's challenges of eco-design and eco-manufacturing of distributed products. How? By controlling the manufacturing and supply chain from start to finish.
