Whitepaper: E-Commerce - Transforming Australian Supply Chains

Authored by James Allt-Graham, Shanaka Jayasinghe & Phillip Diao

Australian retail supply chains are becoming more and more complex. They must be capable of managing increasing customer expectations, channel diversification and increasingly complex product sourcing strategies. A step-change in supply chain design and capability is required if retailers are to remain competitive. GRA has released a whitepaper explaining why online retailing is so challenging, what can be learnt from overseas, and how retailers can be positioned to profit through their online business.

The whitepaper is available for free and can be downloaded here.
