Power Better and Faster Supply Chain Decisions During the COVID-19 Pandemic
As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads across the U.S. and consumer buying behavior continues to change rapidly, CPG manufacturers and their supply chains are being challenged in unprecedented ways. From long truck lines to pick up products at distribution centers to satisfying demand spikes as cities institute lockdown measures, manufacturers need a quicker way to understand what is happening across retailers. This is critical for them to adjust their supply chain in order to ensure the right products are on shelf in the right quantities at the right stores.
During this 30-minute webinar, we discuss the latest sales and inventory trends that we are seeing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, what it means for the industry and how manufacturers can work through this challenging time leveraging daily supply chain data. You will learn:
- How this information can be used to better estimate future purchase orders
- How you can better understand the most recent sales and inventory movement
- What areas you can and should be monitoring on an ongoing basis as the impact of COVID-19 grows and potentially becomes part of the new normal for consumers
