Omnichannel distribution is challenging the traditional distribution norm.
While ecommerce is an operational challenge above and beyond retail distribution, omnichannel distribution steps up the challenges exponentially with customers expecting every DC and retail location to be a single integrated entity.
The good news is, when the omnichannel strategy is executed to its fullest, it is a windfall in savings and time for the retailer and a dream for their customers.
At IDS, we understand the logistical challenges in omnichannel distribution and provide our customers with customized fulfillment solutions:
Technology & Compliance

One of the most difficult processes in any supply chain is returns. Through advanced technology and focused processes, IDS implements a reverse logistics infrastructure that seamlessly handles omnichannel returns.
