SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Jan. 14, 2021 - Blue Yonder, the leading digital supply chain and omni-commerce fulfillment platform provider, and Retail Systems Research (RSR), the leader in retail technology research, have released two new infographics from the benchmark report “Retail Supply Chain: Navigating Through Rough Waters with Improved Agility,” originally released in December 2021.  

The first infographic demonstrates that retailers recognize investing in supply chain processes and technologies is more important now than at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. It also outlines the technologies — either budgeted or planned — most likely to change in the year ahead. View the “It’s Time to Modernize Supply Chains” infographic here.

The second infographic highlights what retailers are looking for in a modern supply chain solution. The data shows that the supply chain has new requirements: a greater focus on sustainability and the ability to enhance traditional store-oriented customer order fulfillment with new and emerging methods, like direct-to-customer shipping or fulfillment from distribution centers.
