Videocast Series: Making Retail Smarter

Part II: How to reduce transportation costs by 30% with a better supply chain network strategy.

Paying More to Transport Your Goods: “That’s Not Smart!” Learn How to reduce transportation costs by 30% with a better supply chain strategy.

Whether you are a retail, manufacturer, or wholesaler, supply chain network design can have a huge impact on logistics and transportation costs.

For retailers especially, the performance of the supply chain can be the difference between profit and loss. There are many aspects of the supply chain that a Retailer must get right. This includes the number and location of warehouses, the flow of inventory through the supply chain, the routing of the trucks to the stores, the replenishment policies into the warehouses and stores, and all the way to the layout of the store and the placement of SKU's on the shelf. In this webinar, we will take you through IBM ILOG's portfolio of solutions for Retailers highlighted by case studies.

Join IBM subject matter expert, Michael S. Watson, Ph.D. to learn how to make the most of your shelf space. This webcast will include several examples of how leading retailers have made this happen.

As usual - excellent material from IBM ILOG.
