The human arsenal might be expansive beyond all limits, but it is still yet to possess anything more valuable than that tendency of ours to grow on a consistent basis. This is because the stated tendency has already fetched us some huge milestones, with technology appearing as a rather unique member of the group. The reason why technology’s credentials are so anomalous is based on its skill-set, which was unprecedented enough to guide us towards a reality that nobody could have ever imagined otherwise. Nevertheless, if we look a little bit closer, it should become clear how the whole runner was also very much inspired by the way we applied those skills across a real-world environment. The latter component was, in fact, what gave the creation a spectrum-wide presence and made it the ultimate centerpiece of every horizon. Having such an ingenious tool run the show would unsurprisingly scale up the human experience from every conceivable direction, but even after doing so much, this prodigious concept of technology will somehow continue to bring all the right goods to the table. The same has turned more and more evident over the recent past, and truth be told, a new development around the automotive space should only make that trend bigger and better moving forward.
Quiet Platforms, a B2B logistics subsidiary of apparel retailer American Eagle Outfitters Inc., is reportedly planning to enter more US markets, as it looks to realize its ambition of offering next day deliveries on all orders within next three years. Going by what we know so far, the company is working with real estate firm, JLL, to open fulfillment centers across 10 US cities, except plans to add more and reach a total of 50 cities are already in place. Interestingly enough, these new warehouses are not going to be anything like Quiet Platforms’ existing nine distribution centers. But how will they stand out from the pack? Well, for starters, they’ll follow the company’s intention to invest more in smaller facilities that are close to various population hubs across the country. Beyond their close proximity with the customer, the new fulfilment centres are also expected to specialize in specific tasks, such as sorting packages or consolidating goods. This distribution of workload, like you can guess, is directed at cutting back on the turnaround time, and therefore, make the delivery operation as quick as possible.
“Everyone in retail says we want to be in the right place at the right time with the right quantities. But they’re starting with the wrong quantities in the wrong location from the wrong space, right there in the center of the country trying to access the customer some, like, 700 miles away. The last-mile delivery cost is going to be super high for that. So getting the inventory closer and processing it decentralized is the way of the future,” said Shekar Natarajan, president of Quiet Platforms.
In order to achieve the proverbial cost efficiency, Quite Platform is, quite interestingly, looking at properties that aren’t your typical office and retail space. You see, rent for such commercial properties has lately been on an upwards trend, so by avoiding that cost, the company should be able to keep its delivery charges low and affordable. Hold on, there is more. These new warehouses will also offer retailers an option to scale up or down seasonally based on the amount of space they need for inventory.
