Plan for Tomorrow's Supply Chain Technology at CES 2015
“Planning is bringing the future into the present, so that you can do something about it now.”
More than ever, technology requires us to consider what will happen tomorrow, today. Though supply chain operations are rooted in proven, reliable systems, technology is inextricably linked to logistics and drives rapid change here just as much as it does in other industries.
Next week we'll be at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2015) in Las Vegas, all set to take in the next big trends in tech. We're also eager to talk to technology-oriented companies about how our advanced EDI and order systems enhance supply chains just like yours, driving quicker delivery lead times and cutting waste from the fulfillment process.
Just as tech companies need to keep on the cutting edge of their market, logistics providers like us must stay up to speed on the latest, greatest ways to move your products seamlessly through the supply chain and out to your customers as efficiently as possible. It's the base that great technology brands are built on.
What happens, for example, if your customer wants your product so much that they're pay a premium to have it delivered to their door within the hour?
That's not the future, it's on offer today in New York City from Master & Dynamic, a top of the range audio technology brand with whom we work to satisfy customer demand almost instantaneously. It's the cutting edge of order fulfillment technology that everyone from local business to global e-commerce companies like Amazon are eagerly pursuing as a standard service.
Same-day and even within-the-hour delivery?
That's instant gratification for a grateful customer, but that's the kind of spontaneity that requires extensive planning and precision execution on your part!
If you'll be at CES 2015 as well - or if you could simply use some help bringing your supply chain up to speed for 2015 - we'd love to talk to you about the latest supply chain technology. Let's have a conversation that makes you rethink the old adage "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas." These are solutions that you'll want to take home and talk about.
Here's to a prosperous and increasingly efficient year ahead for your business!
