Wholesale cosmetics distributors occupy a difficult position as the “middle man” between manufacturers and retailers.
Recent changes have posed new challenges that threaten to disrupt their integral role in the movement of goods and the economy in general.
Fortunately, some of these challenges are issues that can be solved by embracing technology to evolve and adapt to the changing market.
According to a study by Deloitte, distributors of the future must see the opportunities being created by disruptions in the changing market, and they need to build the capabilities required to capitalize on them.
The focus on the customer remains, but distributors of the future must leverage new insights and deliver a differentiating experience.
In the future, the supply chain transforms with technology to become more efficient, transparent, and integrated.
