Companies are re-thinking their supply strategies to meet new consumer demands and e-commerce. Different choices on where and how companies design and operate their distribution facilities are leading to new supply chain facility footprints that include smaller facilities that are closer to the customer.

The four trends are driving this change and transforming distribution center (DC) networks include:

  • The e-commerce revolution
  • Globalization and right-shoring
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Technology innovation
