MULTICHANNEL MERCHANT » ARCHIVES FOR
With U.S. ecommerce sales surpassing the $200 billion mark and projections of continued double-digit growth, it is increasingly important that multichannel retailers develop a process to integrate these channels and manage fulfillment efficiently and effectively. However, many retailers are busy on the front end optimizing their websites and stores.
As fulfillment center workers age, excessive bending and stretching can lead to higher rates of injury and associated workman’s compensation expense. In addition, fatigued workers are less efficient and more prone to error. As ecommerce demand grows, companies should consider automated storage and retrieval and goods-to-person technologies to accommodate fulfillment needs and simultaneously improve workers’ quality of life.
