Manufacturing

For years, manufacturers have been a link in a long supply chain. A midpoint where raw materials are transformed into usable products for resale by distributors and wholesalers. A linear and predictable process from input to output. But is this linear model keeping pace with our modern economy?

The manufacturing landscape is radically shifting for 2020. Here are a few trends we’ve tracked in the industry:

  • Supply chain managers increasingly moving away from standardization.
  • 13% of consumers prefer to order directly from a brand; that number is projected to go up by 14% in the next year.
  • Stores are increasingly being used for fulfilling and shipping online orders. This process saves retailers 5% to 10% in shipping costs.
