Retail Consolidation: Mastering the Middle Mile
08/20/2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
In the current economic climate, heightened consumer demand has made it difficult for many retailers to keep shelves stocked, with shortages of common household supplies dominating headlines for months. While the demand for these items could be a big growth opportunity for shippers using supply chain models like retail consolidation, many have failed to keep up and meet it due to issues around visibility, inefficiencies, fill rates, inventory control and more.
To share strategies to help companies master the middle mile and ensure they are able to continue driving sales during times of uncertainty, FreightWaves is partnering with RJW Logistics Group to host an hour-long webinar on Thursday, August 20 at 2pm ET. During this session, we will feature a panel discussion with insights from former EVP of Logistics for Walmart, Chris Sultemeier, as well as RJW’s CEO, Kevin Williamson, and Senior Vice President of Strategy and Business Development, Greg Forbis. The conversation will explore the key gaps that have led to supply chain issues, how companies can work to better meet consumer demand and drive sales, and the basics of retail consolidation.
Key areas of discussion will include:
- • How companies can save money and drive efficiency through retail consolidation
- • The importance of multi-day review and a centralized, single-location model
- • The role of data and technology on creating transparency across the supply chain
