Therefore, in case of too many returns, retailers have to be careful to make sure that at the end of the day, they are not losing money on the pick, pack, and ship element.

“Act Vertical” vs. “Go Extinct” Retailers - Part 1


In over a decade of covering the enterprise application space, I’ve repeatedly lauded and advised vertical focus (i.e., someone’s proven expertise in some particular industry and market segment), but not that much vertical integration per se. My beliefs were recently confirmed by what I learned while pursuing my APICS CSCP (Certified Supply Chain Professional) title. Namely, Module One of the

Whether you call it e-commerce, e-retailing, digital commerce, or something else entirely, there is a veritable revolution going on in the internet commerce space.

In an effort to improve the state of consumer privacy, Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), and the Office of Thrift Supervision, on January last year announced that they have put together joint guidelines to safeguard confidential customer information.
