The E-Commerce Logistics Forum will provide a unique exploration of potential solutions to the omni-channel fulfillment and logistic challenges facing retailers and brand owners in Thailand – not just a few random presentations in a big expo, but a tightly-focused event devoted exclusively to omni-channel supply chain fulfillment and logistics.
E-commerce poses the unique challenge of inventory arriving in bulk, but requires much care from there – receiving bulk orders, then inventorying and picking those SKUs as individual products.
Therefore, e-commerce retailers have to find a way to standardize and synchronize business processes to have real-time access and insight to inventory movement. Often, with dozens of suppliers, multiple warehouses, and an extensive number of sales channels, the chances of a misplaced order are much higher.
The event will examine the latest thinking in distribution center siting, design and layout; cutting-edge processes and technology for material handling and next-day and same-day fulfillment; strategies, processes and technology for in-store fulfillment; and strategies for next-day and same-day delivery. Throughout, the emphasis will be on examining the cost and benefits of alternative solutions.
The event will be a great opportunity to network and compare notes about trial projects, successes and lessons learned with people who are busy tackling the omni-channel challenge in Thailand.
