Consumer behavior has completely changed the way apparel retailers, wholesalers, and design manufacturers have to do business. What once was an easy feat of building a distribution center to supply multiple storefronts doesn’t scale for omni-channel behavior. An increase in competition has retailers needing a greater variety of styles, sizes, and colors on-hand and ready for consumers—regardless of where or how they shop. E-commerce has completely changed the way consumers do business—and distribution has to match this new demand. With shoppers wanting items delivered fast and directly to their residence or ready for in-store pick-up, normal distribution channels aren’t working. Couple these new demands with high real estate prices and low unemployment, retailers and manufacturers are looking for ways to maximize existing square footage while decreasing the need for labor.
