Next week we will look at how conventional supply chain operations are transforming due to the rise of omni-channel retailing.

We will explore methods omni-channel retailers’ use to fulfil customer demand, with emphasis on last mile delivery. With the growth of omni-channel supply chains, we will also examine the operational aspect (warehousing and distribution logistics) of omni-channel retailers versus conventional retailers.
