Coresight Research x Blue Yonder: Supporting the Customer Journey—Learn from Covid-19 To Build a Resilient Retail Supply Chain

What's Inside

On January 26, 2021, Coresight Research and Blue Yonder hosted a virtual mini conference, “Supporting the Customer Journey: Localization for Speed to Market and Flexibility.”

The event brought together leaders from top retailers and organizations—including AAFA (American Apparel & Footwear Association), New Balance, Orvis, PVH Corp. and Tractor Supply—to explore existing challenges in retail and the strategies that brands and retailers can employ to keep up with fast-changing consumer demand and shifting market conditions.

In this free report, we provide eight key insights from the mini conference, covering the following topics:

  • Nearshoring and “newshoring” strategies, as well as the on-demand manufacturing model
  • Synchronized supply chains and reducing risk in inventory management
  • Sustainability and environmental initiatives
  • Last-mile delivery
  • The role of physical stores—in terms of customer shopping preferences and the in-store experience, and as fulfillment centers
  • Direct-to-consumer selling
