A recent survey from global shipping firm UPS has major implications for the retail industry and its warehouse strategy going forward.
In perhaps the survey's biggest bombshell, UPS found that 51 percent of shoppers made all of their purchases online in 2016. That's the first time e-commerce sales have beat out department stores since UPS began the survey five years ago.
For retailers of all stripes, this proves that the time to get warehouse management in gear is now. A cloud WMS provides them with the tools they need to grow their business quickly and keep their customers happy.
