Learn about the emerging IBP technologies changing the game in supply chain with Darrell Edwards.
According to a recent study conducted by PwC, 41% of consumers stated they are willing to pay added fees to have the package delivered the same day it is ordered. With consumer expectations further shifting to an always-on virtual e-commerce experience, same day delivery expenditure is expected to reach $15.6 billion by 2025 in the U.S. alone.
Additional research from McKinsey & Company recently reported that mature integrated business planning (IBP) processes increased sales opportunities by as much as 50%, improved service levels up to 20%, and lowered freighter costs by 10 to 15%.
