"Same-day fulfillment and extended order times will be provided, thus eliminating, at least partially, the use of regional warehouses. In addition, customers will be given real-time, next-flight-out and courier visibility, event notification, monitoring, recovery and proof of delivery" [via]
FedEx Corp. announced Tuesday the launch of a new supply chain service called FedEx Critical Inventory Logistics. This is interesting, but at what price will this be leveraged into the market. High Tech folios know what what the productions lines consuption is very early in the Process an Production planning cycles. High Tech industries cant afford their Siemens Backoff and Screen machines to go dry for lack of components. So i am failing to see extactly what value is being brought here. If its see critical, then these high tech's will just ship it with a Person a "hand carry". Same day fulliflment is difficult, unless you know stock levels at the down stream providers.
Anyhow, this is the talk of in the markets and I wanted to rant my thoughts too :)-
