Indianapolis, IN -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/26/2015 -- Blake Bearden, Bastian Solutions' Regional Director of West Coast and Marvin Logan, Bastian Solutions' Director of Consulting Services were recently interviewed by Russell Goodman, editor-in-chief of SupplyChainBrain. The interview centered on Bearden and Logan's ProMat 2015 presentation titled, "The Building Blocks for Achieving Same-Day Order Fulfillment."
Logan explained the factors involved in advancing need for same-day delivery, "A lot of it comes from customer expectations. We are seeing more and more customers wanting to get their goods on the same day they order them. A lot of it has to do with where they live, some places used this kind of service, such as bigger cities. Other factors include social media which is most prevalent among millennials. Millennials tend to be impatient and that is driving same-day delivery as well. Another factor includes technical advances which increase the ability to fulfil same-day orders."
