Analyst Insight: Retailers are still tweaking their omnichannel strategies to leverage their distribution centers and physical stores in the new e-commerce economy. Inventory optimization across stores, DCs, and drop-shipping requires a move toward a unified view of all inventory, and achieving efficient and cost-effective storage, accessibility and movement. In addition, tailored order fulfillment programs from buy-online, pickup-in-store (BOPIS) to direct-to-consumer (DTC) are now vital parts of directing purchases for greater buyer satisfaction.
Each year, companies lose thousands of productive hours as warehouse workers walk up and down fulfillment center floors. A new "man to goods" approach by software provider SnapFulfil is aiming to change that.

Meeting customer demands for free and fast shipping, whether B2B, B2C, or B2B2C is driving the increase in parcel volume and the expansion of delivery choices. Companies are struggling to manage the shift from a centralized fulfillment model to a more decentralized model that emphasizes shipping from inventory sources (stores, manufacturers and other suppliers) in closer proximity to end consumers. Merchants now need to think differently about how to successfully manage omnichannel parcel and LTL strategies.
Getting your omnichannel shipping strategy right means improved customer service, shorter distances to the customer, increased speed of delivery, and reduced cost.
