Technology is changing distribution operations to meet the demand of customers wanting faster services/shipments. According to research conducted by Invesp Co.,  96% of customers associate fast as same-day delivery, so faster speed in the order fulfillment operations is essential. Moreover, faster operations impact customer loyalty. For example, according to a consumer study conducted by Oracle Retail, 13% of surveyed customers reported avoiding a retailer if their delivery is late.
