Impact of logistics

February 22, 2013

Welcome to the launch of "Logistics and Home Delivery," where we'll be weighing in on various aspects of both and how they impact the retail furniture business.

Logistics, you'll likely agree, is a fuzzy word that encompasses many meanings, while home delivery sounds like mere after-sale heavy lifting. Truth be told, the process of procuring and distributing home furnishings involves so much more.

To that end, we'll address the concerns of retailers and discuss issues affecting home delivery, from fuel costs, prepping furniture, technology, and industry regulations, to hours of service, recruiting delivery contractors, safety, and warehousing.

We encourage you to be part of this online conversation. Your observations, comments, and questions will help focus the discussion and bring it all home.
Stay tuned for my upcoming posts.
