7 Integrated Supply Consultants, ISC *Quotes from Internet Retailer “very or extremely important” to meet customer expectations for multi-channel purchasing and delivery options. “Indeed, fulfillment has emerged for multi-channel retailers in general as one of the keys to overall success. In a study of retail fulfillment practices last year by Aberdeen Group, more than 70% of retailers said they considered it “very or extremely important” to meet customer expectations for multi-channel purchasing and delivery options. 46% of retailers expect order fulfillment costs to rise over the next two years, 29% expect no change and only 25% expect their fulfillment costs to decrease.” But while order fulfillment has become front and center among the concerns of many retailers—a far cry from the early days of the Internet—its cost for many merchants is rising. Aberdeen found that 46% of retailers expect order fulfillment costs to rise over the next two years, 29% expect no change and only 25% expect their fulfillment costs to decrease.” *Internet Retailer
