Innovating to beat the competition
Providing value to your customers with innovative solutions
The wholesale and distribution sector is a traditional and long-standing industry that is facing the most abrupt changes due to digital disruption and its pivotal position between supply and demand.
Objective: remaining as the middle man between modern consumers and alternative go-to-market routes via disruptive entrants.
Measuring success and profitability on operational efficiency/supply chain management is something of the past. Today success and profitability are based on customer engagement and innovation in services.
Facing the distribution challenges
Digitization and the shift to the cloud are redefining distribution in how it supports changes required with the dynamics of the channels distributors need to use to interact with their customers. Mobility and responsiveness have become the central themes of the industry, whilst allowing distributors to control costs.
Disruptive entrants to the distribution space such as Amazon have raised the expectations on service (robotics, drone delivery). Alternative and modern methods must be developed such as the « last mile » and fleet management to counter:
- A changing competitive landscape and a new generation of supply chain management
- Transportation and shipping costs
- Government regulations and the ever changing demands of B2B customers and their B2C consumers
