RETAIL SUPPLY CHAINS: Future Trends for Retail and Consumer Packaged Goods End Users

  • The retail sector is going through profound changes in Canada. There are have been a number of recently announced high profile mergers and acquisitions (e.g. Loblaw purchases Shoppers Drug Mart, Sobey’s buys Canada Safeway, Hudson’s Bay buys Saks) that will transform the retail landscape. We are also witnessing the American invasion. The recent opening of Target Stores and Premium Outlet Malls and the planned entry of Nordstrom’s and Saks will certainly have effects on Canada’s already competitive retail environment. Changes in consumer purchasing behavior and global economic trends are also shaping retail footprints and distribution channels.

    As these events unfold, Canada’s transportation and warehousing operators are adjusting to the new normal. What is the “new normal” and what does that mean for professional logisticians? In this presentation, a leading real estate executive will take you on a journey through the evolving world of retail logistics.
