OMNICHANNEL WAREHOUSING ISSUE FOR MID-SIZE FIRMS
Omnichannel warehousing creates a dilemma for many mid-size firms. The usual configuration is to fill the cube of the warehouse. That is what manufacturers and others do. E-commerce is not a vertical/cube issue. It is horizontal--fills floor space for inventory, rollers/conveyors, packaging, etc. That requires segmenting warehouse space to fit two different stocking and shipping requirements in a fixed warehouse footprint.
