Retailers are losing out on over a third of consumers’ planned spend during peak season

Peak trading periods offer retailers specific windows of opportunity to improve profitability through well thought out promotions. However, recent research conducted by Sapio Research on behalf of supply chain technology specialists, Zetes reveals that up to 35% of consumers’ peak season planned spend is being lost.

 

Clearly this has a significant impact on a retailer’s performance during a period where extensive planning and execution effort has gone into maximising revenues. So why and how are such significant sales opportunities being lost?

Effective promotions management is pivotal to a successful peak for retailers, however, the research shows that a staggering 40% of consumers have had issues with a promotion and, of those, 45% subsequently decided not to buy the product.

3D printing and the future of Supply Chains
 

DHL released its latest DHL Trend Report today - 3D Printing and the Future of Supply Chains. DHL has been testing a variety of both 3D printing hardware and techniques for several years and has identified applications that have potential to redefine manufacturing and supply chain strategies. While the 3D printing market is estimated to grow between US$180 billion and US$490 billion by 20251, the report however finds it will not become a substitute for mass-production but a complementary process.

RESEARCH: JDA & WMG, University of Warwick Study Reveals Most European Manufacturers
 

European manufacturers are failing to effectively use data and analytics when it comes to supply chain planning and segmentation, according to a new report from JDA Software Group, Inc., and WMG, at the University of Warwick. The ‘Supply Chain Segmentation: A Window of Opportunity for European Manufacturing’ report surveyed 100 manufacturing organisations across Europe to benchmark their supply chain segmentation practices. The report revealed that only 18 per cent of respondents considered historic, present and future data in the supply chain planning process, while only 39 per cent of respondents stated that their segmentation models were data-driven. In fact, nearly a quarter (23 per cent) of organisations stated they simply utilise ‘rules of thumb’ over any kind of data-driven methodology.

The Internet of Things (IoT) and its impact on supply chain visibility
 

By 2020, Gartner predicts that more than half of major new business processes will incorporate some element of IoT. Up to 26 billion internet-connected ‘smart’ devices will be installed, generating some $300 billion by the end of the decade. Gartner says a thirty-fold increase in internet-connected physical devices will "significantly alter how the supply chain operates."

DHL Global Connectedness Index: Globalization surpassed pre-crisis peak, advanced modestly in 2015
 

DHL, the global logistics leader, today released the fourth edition of its Global Connectedness Index (GCI), a detailed analysis of the state of globalization around the world. The 2016 report shows that global connectedness, measured by cross-border flows of trade, capital, information and people, surpassed its 2007 pre-crisis peak during 2014. In 2015, globalization’s post-crisis expansion slowed, but the data indicate that it did not go into reverse. Currently available evidence – still preliminary in some areas – suggests that the world was about 8% more connected in 2015 than in 2005.
