Overcoming Disruption with First Mile Technology
All companies are feeling the effects of the unprecedented supply chain disruptions we’ve seen in the past decade—inventory shortages, extreme shipping costs, long shipping times, and personnel shortages, just to name a few.
The financial barriers experienced by manufacturers between first mile and last mile delivery have created a new burden on many businesses’ supply chain. So, how do we solve these issues? How can businesses better prepare themselves for ongoing disruption, while still serving their customers?
In this on-demand webinar, SourceDay and our partner RF-SMART have brought together experts from Echelon Fitness and STH using NetSuite to discuss why businesses need to focus on optimizing and digitizing their supply chain, and where they expect to still see disruption in coming years.

- How first mile technology can bring the necessary visibility and automation to fulfill the last mile
