Well, consider this post a friendly reminder that despite all the incredible and innovative breakthroughs and for all the cool gadgets and devices we all use every single day both as as consumer and from a marketing and advertising perspective, our customers and prospects alike are still human — and as such the need to arouse the sense of touch will always be present.

Distribution Center Management    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Although the products are different, the goals are typically very similar — receive, store, pick, pack and ship as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Rethinking the concept of supply chain optimization
SupplyChainBrain    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Sometimes the path to innovation lies in finding a new meaning for an old word. Take "optimization." That's been the goal of supply chain managers for decades. But what exactly have they been seeking to optimize? Most have centered their efforts on cutting cost and time, says Katharine Frase, vice president of industry solutions and emerging business with IBM Research.

Is green still in?
Folio    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Before the recession hit in 2007, publishers were going green in droves. This movement equated to paper changes, strengthened digital operations, green certifications, environmentally focused in-house practices and more. Unfortunately, as the economy tumbled, many publishers struggled to keep their doors open; those who survived were often forced to shelve their costly green conversions. More

The agony and the ecstasy of Newsweek's Green Rankings
GreenBiz    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Newsweek's third annual Green Rankings are out, and the stories and chatter they'll generate will likely be of the horserace variety: who won, who lost, who moved up or down from the year before, how competitors compare. Fair enough: That's what annual rankings are all about. But those stories will largely miss the mark.

Magazines in tough talks with major wholesaler, publishers face potential rate hikes
Adweek    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Magazine wholesaling giant Source Interlink Cos. and publishers are locked in battle again, two years after Source's demand for higher rates temporarily disrupted newsstand deliveries. It's bad timing for publishers to get hit with higher rates now, as it was then. Newsstand sales remain soft and advertising has barely recovered from the ad recession. Some publishers also are seeing their paper costs go up. More
