Whitepaper: E-Commerce - Transforming Australian Supply Chains

Authored by James Allt-Graham, Shanaka Jayasinghe & Phillip Diao

They must be capable of managing increasing customer expectations, channel diversification and increasingly complex product sourcing strategies. A step-change in supply chain design and capability is required if retailers are to remain competitive. GRA has released a whitepaper explaining why online retailing is so challenging, what can be learnt from overseas, and how retailers can be positioned to profit through their online business.

To assist executives’ preparation for such high-stakes decisions, this presentation outlines three topical supply chain investments which if implemented effectively can substantially transform an organisation's supply chain into a competitive advantage.
