The way consumers shop and interact with brands has evolved and omni-channel retailing is drastically changing the retail landscape. Consumers don’t just want a brick-and-mortar store or an online experience—they need both. In the new omni-channel shopping environment, consumers may visit a physical store in-person to see and feel the product, but then go home to buy online. Or, buy online and either pick up from or return to a store. As a result of these shifts in shopping behavior, retailers are going beyond traditional business models to thrive in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
Omni-channel retailing creates a huge opportunity to drive sales growth domestically and overseas, but it has its challenges. Serving many different customers all over the world results in a complex global network of customers, retailers, wholesalers and manufacturers. And with so many moving parts, the risk of costly disruptions is high. To build a more resilient supply chain, companies can protect their shipments against loss or damage anywhere in the world, regardless of their carrier with UPS Capital Cargo Insurance.
