NO RATINGS

Frank,

This is a very Good and Pertinent Piece that points out how the Coming Demographic Change(especially retirement of Boomers) changes things in the Supply Chain Industry.

But I have also been reading that because of the Recession,The Boomers are increasingly delaying retirements which ensures that many College Grads are under-employed today.

Will this trend alleviate the issue you are pointing to here??

Just wondering.

Multi-channel distribution has resulted in increased levels of automation, but issues like implementation costs and the challenge of combining new and old technologies will need to be overcome.
In the search for a solution to meet the demands of multi-channel distribution, companies move toward centralized inventories, but challenges remain.
