LOGISTICS / DISTRIBUTION / BUSINESS
Supply Chain Consulting
For centuries, the only way to move goods to market was to build your products in factories, ship them to retailers across the country and around the world, then hope that consumers would visit these retailers and purchase your products.
Things have changed.

For the traditional manufacturer, it is no longer a question of “on-line or in-store,” it is now simply facing the reality that a direct-to-consumer (D2C) program must be part of their overall marketing strategy.
