Customization Design & Delivery
Today’s manufacturers are challenged to deliver product differentiation capabilities to meet an ever increasing set of retailer requirements. In many instances this takes the form of unique case packs, special promotional packs, pre-packed displays and now even unique packaging to meet e-commerce logistics requirements. This places significant pressure on total delivered costs given historical making and packing systems have been designed for standardization vs. mass customization. The impact on SKU proliferation, finished goods inventory and operational complexity puts every supply chain professional in a very challenging position to meet cost, cash and service objectives.
