What arrives in L.A. stays in L.A.: DC bypass strategies that leverage the largest U.S. gateway

In a world where products are sourced across the globe and sold to discerning consumers who expect fulfillment anywhere at any time, the growth and success of a retailer can be built or broken by its supply chain. As a majority of retail products are sourced in Asia and arrive at West Coast ports, mid-tier retailers who rely exclusively on centralized distribution centers may be incurring inefficiencies and limiting their growth. Routing all product to an East Coast or Midwest DC, only to bring a quarter of it back to the West Coast for store or direct fulfillment is adding unnecessary links to the supply chain.

Learn more about how a well-planned DC bypass strategy can reduce transportation and inventory carrying costs, increase speed to market, delay allocations and take pressure off existing customer distribution centers.
