For 83% of warehouse managers’ their top priority is to lower operations costs. This is not unusual when you consider the massive shift occurring from brick & mortar retail to e-commerce. The footwear industry is a prime example. No longer is going to the mall for a pair of shoes a consumer’s first choice. Many consumers now prefer shopping from the comfort of their home or the convenience of a mobile device.
Online shopping, e-commerce platforms and mobile technology have created a new consumer. Shopping when and where they like, shipping to when and where they need, and having more options than ever before is what they expect. These new elements of omni-channel fulfillment have forced footwear companies to respond with their existing infrastructure to evolve. Here are 5 facts and trends about how warehouse efficiency is growing.
The changing landscape that is reshaping the footwear industry will only continue to become more complex and competitive. However, with efficient practices and effective processes in place, these new demands can all be met while keeping costs manageable.
