How do trends influence the Distribution industry?

Home | News & Updates | Company Latest | How do trends influence the Distribution industry?

COVID has taught us that we live and run our Distribution businesses in an increasingly unpredictable world. But what should you watch out for and how do trends influence the Distribution industry?

New trends emerge every day, and whilst we are highly focused on certain aspects of the business, direct influences striking from a blindspot are left unnoticed.

Currently, we as a nation are still recovering from the effects of the pandemic and Brexit. Both of which are still weighing on Distributors and delaying deliveries of the stock.

The Distribution industry needs to be more vigilant in terms of world economics, business practices, their approach, and ever-evolving customer needs.

Since the pandemic, one of the biggest trends within the industry is technological advancement, more specifically automation. This tool has been used more than ever, squeezing new incremental value out of processes by digitising them and then redeploying people on more useful activities.
