Latest Supply Chain Consortium Updates
  • Tompkins International Blog How to Choose the Right Sorter for your Material Handling Automation System
    Tuesday, June 30, 2015
    Sorters are commonly used elements in many material handling automation systems.  A sorter is basically a device that can receive inputs (usually products, in single unit or full case form) in any order and separate it into multiple, discrete channels without human intervention.  The main function of a sorter is to allow the decision of what products belong together in one order to be completed without depending on people.  Instead, we will need to use a warehouse management system (WMS) to know all the products that need to go into an order and a collection of machinery to automate the movement of those products.  The machines need to be able to read which product it is receiving and to physically move the correct product to the correct area, together with other products that belong to the same order.  Read more.
  • Tompkins International Blog Why Retailers Need To Be Using Multiple Channels
    Thursday, June 25, 2015
    Last week I read multiple articles regarding the closing of brick and mortar store locations throughout the US.  The titles of a few articles stated "Hope" and "Dying Slowly".  I found these words to be interesting and puzzling in regards to plans for closing one-fourth of a retailer's brick and mortar store locations.  Is there really "Hope" when closing such a large amount of locations?  Is this really "Dying Slowly"?  Read more.

  • Article Profitability of Customer Personalization
    Wednesday, June 24, 2015
    In today's demand driven retail environment, there are many instances in which customer expectations are not satisfied.  In large part, this occurs because company supply chains are not designed to meet the new requirements of omnichannel distribution in a profitable format.  To understand this problem and how to solve it, Tompkins International conducted an analysis to help retailers understand the economics of omnichannel delivery and the potential benefits of designing the supply chain for that service model.  Read more.

    Tuesday, June 16, 2015
