Position your business for success.
Thanks to Amazon, the average consumer now expects fast, free delivery for online orders, whether they’re buying cupcakes or couches. It’s been a sea of change for companies across industries, who’ve had little choice but to make significant (and costly) changes to their pricing and fulfillment strategies. In operationalizing those strategies, many have come face-to-face with a stark reality: meeting faster delivery demand is complex; there’s no one-size-fits-all solution.
Top-performing retailers are learning that to compete, they need to offer a full menu of delivery options – not just next day or same-day options, but now “choose your day” and on-demand. To increase loyalty and stay competitive against Amazon, companies need to reliably deliver orders when customers want them – even if that’s within a few hours.
