We are halfway through 2016 and U.S. retailers have been on a roller coaster ride. According to U.S. international trade statistics, imports of goods decreased $7.8 billion in March to $173.6 billion. Consumer goods reflected a significant decrease as well, leading to the closure of many brick-and-mortar stores; an alarming scenario symptomatic of what could be called “cautionary” consumer spending and concern.

The best thing for retailers to do is buckle down and prepare for the ride shoring up a defense at the base level: the supplier. 

During this webinar, industry experts discuss the best practices for supplier management and how technology can strengthen retail supply chain operations.

Key topics include:

  • Strategies for improving communications
  • How to enhance document management
  • Centralizing accountability through issue assignments and notifications
  • Proactively managing supply chain issues
  • Optimizing visibility and control
