Delivering the goods.
Industry consolidation, globalization, and technology have blurred the lines between the traditional roles of product manufacturer, wholesaler, distributor, retailer, and the consumer. The environment for getting goods to market, and the market itself, is more complex than ever. On one hand, it literally opens up endless possibilities—and on the other, it demands focus, continual planning and analysis, efficient systems, and flexibility.
