Inbound Logistics, Sept. issue - GOOD QUESTION | How Can Brick-and-Mortar Retailers Compete with Amazon?

Originally published in Inbound Logistics

The unending question in today’s retail environment is how brick-and-mortar retailers can stay competitive with Amazon. In this month’s “Good Question” article in Inbound Logistics, Michael Notarangeli provides insight into that question, noting retailers can stay competitive by building in optionality into their supply chains. Mike says in his response that doing so allows retailers to respond quickly to unpredictable tariff situations, and to better address the last mile.

“In a rapidly changing global supply chain, retailers need to build in optionality throughout the end-to-end supply chain to accomplish two things: To respond quickly to unpredictable tariff situations, and to position logistics in such a way as to be able to address the last mile quickly and affordably.”
