When it comes to direct-to-consumer (DTC) distribution and fulfillment, many eCommerce brands lack an efficient operational strategy, resulting in diminished warehouse capacity and lengthy shipping times. So, how can you streamline your operations to replenish inventory and reduce vendor lead times?
One essential action brands should take is to store their inventory in hyperlocal facilities close to the consumer by building a multi-node network offering direct fulfillment. Flexe is a platform that allows businesses to store inventory in a single digital-powered warehouse that ships to multiple channels, including Amazon, Walmart, and Target. With this method, you can reduce your replenishment and lead times by hours or days.
In today’s episode of The Digital Deep Dive, join Aaron Conant as he interviews David Glick, Chief Technology Officer at Flexe, about optimizing your fulfillment strategies. David explains how brands should consider various fulfillment options, Amazon’s Inbound Cross Dock (IXD), and how to manage supply chain operations.
