Workplace modernization is more challenging right now than it’s ever been. The work that organizations today face is truly global in scale – the best technologies to drive business success are scattered all over the globe, and your employees are often distributed as well.
This is bound to present difficulties when it comes to global fulfillment. You’re trying to get the best modern technologies into your employees’ hands as quickly and efficiently as possible, but there are all sorts of roadblocks that can present themselves along the way.
If you think it’s just your business dealing with difficulties like this, not to worry – you’re certainly not alone. According to Supply Chain Brain, we’re currently living in an “age of e-commerce” in which everyone – including manufacturers, distributors, retailers, and end users – is going through some growing pains when it comes to procuring the supplies they need in an efficient manner. Jeff Potts, director of e-commerce fulfillment at Sealed Air, said that myriad challenges are out there.
“Things are changing so fast in e-commerce,” Potts explained. “What we’ve seen is a shift from brick and mortar to the e-commerce distribution of packages. What that’s led to is the fact that people touch packages 20 times more often than they used to. Full pallets were shipped to a big-box store, things were put on the shelf, and that was it. But now you have to package them, we have to get them to the customer, and that whole fulfillment process has changed the supply chain.”
