Material Handling System Integration Challenged with Warehouse to Consumer Delivery Demands


Indianapolis, IN -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/15/2015 -- Blake Bearden, with Bastian Solutions shared that he has yet to take advantage of Amazon's $5.99 expedited same-day delivery service, though regularly takes advantage of their standard two-day delivery with Prime and shares it with several family members.

New entrants to the same-day market such as Google Shopping Express and Newegg will continue to be a growing trend and the Material Handling and Logistics US Roadmap released earlier this year predicts that by 2025, the typical order-to-ship processing times in e-commerce distribution centers should be sufficient to support same-day delivery of in-stock items.

Forrester Research predicts that by 2017, e-commerce retail will comprise roughly 10% of all retail sales. The report cites two principle reasons for the growth in e-commerce, the increasing use of mobile devices resulting in consumers spending more time online and traditional retailers making greater investments in systems capable of handling the demands of e-commerce and omni-channel operations.

Bastian Solutions will exhibit at the WestPack Conference (Booth #4979) from February 10-12 at the Anaheim Convention Center, CA.

Following WestPack, Bastian Solutions will be exhibiting at ProMat 2015 (Booth #3953) held March 23-26 at Chicago's McCormick Place.
