To meet these demands, most retailers now source globally, but this has added further complexity, and therefore greater risk, to their supply chains.
Furthermore, the ever-expanding range of products, sizes, styles, weights, colours and other SKU variations, continually enlarges the inventory profile of most retailers.
Increasingly, clients need logistics providers who can reliably manage their flows, from source to shelf, and control all other supply chain issues, freeing them to concentrate on their core activities.
