FEI Dist/Manuf CFO Series - The Amazon Effect

The Amazon Effect
From the global challenges of international shipping to surface transportation, the world of logistics has never seen a transformation like that of the Amazon Effect. In the E-Commerce market, Amazon possesses more than 50% of the $500 billion dollar industry, so shippers are forced to think outside the box when it comes to their go to market strategy.  It’s gone beyond the traditional B-to-C experience and is now impacting B-to-B transactions. With the leverage of data and reporting, you have an opportunity to identify inefficacies in the network and drive measurable optimized solutions.
