    • What Retail Tells Us• National Retail Federation: retail growth for 2012 should be 3.4%, down from 4.7% growth in 2011 (GDP growth 2.1%-2.4%)• Amazon growth in 2010 was 39.5%, revenue of $34.2 Billion – 52 Distribution Centers exist – 28 overseas order processing, fulfillment DC’s – 17 Distribution Centers proposed/planned – 1/5/2012, Two new DC sites announced in VA, one in TN; 1/24/2012, new DC site announced in SC

    • Projected Impact of E-Commerce• By 2025 it has been estimated that Ecommerce will represent 30% of all Retail Sales and account from 2.7 trillion in total sales (Source: Dematic)• Within 5 years, the percentage of sales closed at physical stores vs. alternative sales channels (E-Commerce, M- Commerce and S-Commerce) will drop from 91% (today) to 76% (Deloitte Study)
    • Shipping’s Role in E-Commerce• Fulfillment “promise” stipulates site selection and access to transportation networks and hubs• “Free shipping” retains transactions (3/4 of consumers abandon shopping at checkout if shipping is not free) – Shipping solutions include “retail shipping clubs based on purchase thresholds, linking free shipping to minimum orders or certain products (higher margins), customized delivery or providing free shipping on two or three day delivery solutions
    • Why Does all this Matter?• The logistics systems must continue to evolve to support this new commerce channel, – Buildings, building configurations, processing systems – Truck-load, less-than-truck load distances – Zone-skipping – Multiple air hubs – Truck Hubs – Customized deliver, disposal of products – And new job opportunities (WSJ: wanted e- commerce chiefs: salary ranges $300k-500k according to top recruiters (11/15/2011)
    • How Are They Making It Work?• Single DC supports national store replenishment and e-commerce order fulfillment• Stand alone DC(s) for store replenishment and stand alone e-commerce fulfillment centers (in different locations)• Third-party sourcing for all aspects of fulfillment and transaction support• Third-party sourcing for selected goods to enhance product launch, seasonal products
