Consumer marketplaces continue to evolve as a growing percentage of shoppers now choose to make a significant amount of their purchases online. As a result, manufacturers and retailers alike are being asked to increase their service levels while ensuring products arrive safely, whether at a traditional brick and mortar location or directly to the consumer’s location.
