When you think e-commerce – you think, Amazon. We’ve witnessed profound impacts e-commerce has had on society – most evident in Retail, online as well as brick and mortar. But the impacts reach much further back into the supply chain – disrupting everything in multiple business categories.
As a direct result, the pressure on American Manufacturing to move goods to market faster, is radically transforming business strategies – to speed up order turnaround time. The definition of acceptable order lead times is changing – the new competitive weapon – moving goods faster. The customer doesn’t care how, they just want their order shipped complete and they want it noooow. This impact is being called the Amazon Effect.
What is the Amazon Effect? According to whatis.techtarget.com – ‘the ongoing evolution and disruption of the retail market, both online and in physical outlets, resulting from increased e-commerce’.
Amazon keeps their focus on their customers, not the competition. The competition has no choice but to step it up.
