The world of E-commerce/Omni Channel is popular. Very popular.
You’d have to be living under a rock not to notice the trend of online ordering over the past decade, but you may be surprised to know how popular it’s really become.
In 2014, Amazon became the first top-ten US retailer without a bricks-and-mortar store. It’s also averaged 30% growth since 2006. Pretty impressive, but they’re not alone.
In the US, online-only retailers are outgrowing their bricks-and-mortar colleagues by more than 62%.
This coming of age has brought new heights of choice and convenience to the consumer but has wrought havoc and headache for distribution centers that have undergone major changes to keep up with them.
UPDATING THE DISTRIBUTION CENTER TO MEET MODERN SHOPPERS’ NEEDS
If you have been involved in order fulfillment in the last decade or more, there is a good chance you have seen a change in your facility’s picking patterns. Over the last 15 years, many DC’s, especially in the retail sector, have found themselves picking far fewer pallets and more individual items. This change can be attributed to the significant rise in e-commerce sales and consumer direct shipping.
