Even before Covid-19, the growth of eCommerce was already outpacing supply chain and material handling capabilities. What is known as the “Amazon Effect” took consumer demands to new heights, intensifying the urgency to keep up with Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) demands. The pandemic only added fuel to the fire, accelerating trends and condensing 10-year projections into the span of 18 months.
