Supply Chain Newsmakers Video Series:

Garner's Dwight Klappich on the Distribution Labor Crisis


Aug. 6, 2019

With the labor intensive demands of ecommerce and more, the labor situation in distribution is getting to almost crisis proportions in some markets.

Technology such as Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) have always been focused on reducing labor costs, but now the emphasis is starting to shift to reducing the need for hard-to-find labor, says Gartner analyst Dwight Klappich, in this latest edition of our "Klappich’s Corner" feature.

Ditto with Labor Management Systems, Klappich says, where labor planning and scheduling are starting to eclipse productivity gains as the top focus areas.

And what else are leading companies doing to address the growing DC labor crisis?

SCDigest editor Dan Gilmore discusses all this and more with Klappich in this fast paced video interview, an excerpt from our weekly Supply Chain Video News program, with CSCMP.
