COVID-19 brought on a dramatic shift to online ordering for both B2B and B2C shoppers. As a result, warehouses around the world struggled with ramping up to meet the sudden increase in volumes and managing cost-containment, labor, availability, scalability, growth forecasting and planning, and meeting customer expectations.
