The 107-year-old family-owned chain, which has 48 locations across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, has been able to modernize and optimize its dropship program through the migration to Logicbroker, adding much-needed flexibility for its dropship vendors.
“Dropship has proven itself as an efficient means of fulfillment for our company and our customers,” said Jen Redcay, Manager of Supplier Direct Fulfillment for Boscov’s in a statement. “Logicbroker’s technology has modernized and streamlined this process, connecting us to our suppliers faster than ever and with a lower cost of ownership. We have better vendor management capabilities now, and with complete visibility of our digital supply chain, we are positioned for great scalable growth.”
According to Brendan Witcher, VP and Principal Analyst for Digital Business Strategy at Forrester Research, dropship is now in the top third of programs that retailers are currently investing in, because it enables scalability and removes risk at a moment when warehousing and supply chain logistics are even more complicated than normal for retailers. “Shipping directly from the manufacturer is a way of avoiding some of the logistical problems,” Witcher said in an interview with Retail TouchPoints. “Any time you remove process from the supply chain, you reduce risk.”
