Thursday, January 12th
 In Partnership  WERCouncil  with Greater North Jersey APICS presents:
On-Demand Warehousing and Logistics
Presenter: Jennifer Pazour, Ph.D.

On-demand business models, exemplified by prominent companies like Uber and Airbnb, operate marketplaces in which a crowd of independent entities rent access to their resources.  On-demand businesses use internet-based platforms to provide wide-reach visibility into untapped resource capacity. This has the potential to increase resource visibility, utilization, accessibility, and flexibility.  A variety of on-demand warehousing and logistics companies exist for goods storage (e.g., FLEXE), and goods movement (e.g., Cargomatic, Flexport, Instacart, Deliv).   We explore the competitive landscape and characteristics of on-demand warehousing and logistics systems, as well as compare and contrast on-demand business models with traditional models. 

What you will learn:

  • Be able to identify the characteristics of an on-demand warehousing and logistics business model.
  • Be able to compare and contrast on-demand warehousing and logistics models with traditional models. 
  • How to find on-demand warehousing and logistics services for varying supply chain and logistics functions.

 

What you will take from the presentation?

  • How on-demand business models are transforming how the warehousing and logistics industry operates.
  • Identify where an on-demand model can change a company’s strategy and operation for storage and movement.
  • Identify challenges with designing and using on-demand systems for the movement and storage of goods.
