from DC Velocity

Shoppers love e-commerce for its order-from-home convenience and quick delivery, but the online shopping trend is straining many DCs' ability to meet the fast fulfillment deadlines, according to a survey performed by the market research firm YouGov of Palo Alto, California, for Honeywell Sensing and Productivity Solutions, of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
