Summary: – In an era of instant gratification, waiting on products we order online has become a thing of the past. Most of us want what we want, when we want it – or sooner. Whether shopping at our favorite retail store or shopping online, we want our transactions to be quick and easy. One of Amazon’s many accomplishments was successfully embedding in every consumer’s mind that a wide variety of goods should be available online at all times; now consumers are being conditioned to want items as soon as possible, giving rise to the idea of same-day delivery
Body: – Same-day delivery could be considered a saving grace for critical last minute purchases, but the question we should be asking is whether there is a genuine need for same-day delivery, or can most purchases wait another day? Consumers want more choices when it comes to shopping online and more control over when their purchases will be delivered, along with a convenient returns process. But does this mean they need items the same day?
Taking a step back, the difference between 8 hours and 24 hours can be the difference between accurate orders and rushed orders. The more that orders are rushed to meet a deadline, the greater the chance for a customer’s experience to be less than ideal.
Regardless, delivery time reduction will put pressure on the supply chains of every company, requiring changes in outbound shipping processes to leverage the existing store replenishment network. Retailers must pick the stores closest to the consumer to meet delivery expectations, which is difficult because the online fulfillment and distribution centers are often in different locations. Work processes must be created to help associates separate merchandise for customer (or delivery service) pickup from items sold in-store.
