Supply chain inefficiencies in the retail sector continue to affect how traders do business. Logistics, storage and the ever-changing consumer demands are just some of the challenges retailers have to cope with.
To stay afloat in business they are constantly thinking of new ways to ensure that they meet consumer needs, remain competitive and prevent revenue loss. By managing supply chain processes, retailers are better able to cut excess costs and in turn offer value to consumers
