On Tuesday, February 12, Ryder announced an e-commerce fulfillment solution set to transform the way many manufacturers do business online, offering an alternative to third-party marketplaces by fulfilling orders of manufacturer products direct to consumers. With Ryder’s new solution, manufacturers of small to large parcel goods across all industries gain greater control over product selection, inventory management, pricing strategy, and customer service, all while maintaining critical speed to market.
The influx of patients driving higher demand for supplies, at a time when the industry is experiencing declining reimbursements, creates an environment that is ripe for supply chain transformation. Ryder is an expert in helping businesses rethink their supply chain strategies and can bring its in-depth expertise and proven experience to yours.
