Retail has been in a constant state of evolution dating back to the days of bazaars, but the coronavirus pandemic accelerated change in retail like never before. Moving products closer to consumers, speeding up delivery times, and dealing with exponential online sales growth while testing out new fulfillment methods can all cause huge strain.

On this episode of Point of Sale, Andrew Cox breaks down the past year of accelerated growth and where that growth is headed as COVID-19 slows and the economy comes back online. 

With Cox to discuss how shippers are adapting from a technological perspective is Michael Newcity, chief innovation officer at ArcBest. Newcity explains the importance of having knowledgeable supply chain technologists, how tech can be made more accessible and the biggest themes he’s seeing across retail supply chains.
