The runaway train of e-commerce continues to gain momentum as we begin 2017. But this growth has been no surprise to retailers, both domestic and international. e-commerce has revolutionized business-to-consumer sales resulting in a newly empowered consumer – one with higher expectations for the retail shopping experience.
Later this month, the AAEI and FTA Western Regional Seminar in Torrance, CA on January 30-31, 2017 will focus on the expansion of e-commerce and how it’s affected retailers on a global scale.
Increased e-commerce volumes are putting intensive demands on the supply chain and retailers continue to research how to build out their e-commerce infrastructure. Because customer expectations have shifted, supply chain strategies need to shift with them – turning your supply chain operations into a competitive differentiator, rather than a necessity.
For organizations to strengthen their competitive advantages in the sales channel, primary gaps must be addressed with a combination of technology, trade compliance knowledge, and automation.
During the seminar, Amber Road’s Product Evangelist Gary Barraco will address the key building block capabilities to create a successful e-commerce infrastructure. Gary will reveal the results of a recent survey conducted by Amber Road and AAEI that asked over 250 supply chain professionals about their e-commerce operations and how they’ve adjusted to the upsurge of e-commerce sales.
