Multi-retail Environment Logistics
In a typical multi-retailer environment, such as an airport, shopping mall or urban shopping centre, inbound goods are delivered by lots of suppliers to each store, in small quantities. This means colossal inefficiency and multiplication of effort, as well as large amounts of avoidable noise, pollution and inconvenience to the local population. Worse, key logistics processes are performed by retailers and landlords, who are distracted from their core business activities.
DHL’s solution is a consolidation platform, located close to the airport, shopping mall or urban shopping centre. All deliveries are routed via the consolidation platform, significantly reducing the amount of inbound delivery traffic, leaving retailers and landlords free to focus on what they do best.
