July 25, 2017 Peter Edlund

If you work in supply chain management, you know that planning for the holidays doesn't happen during the "Holiday Season" - it starts many months earlier. 

The holiday season pushes everyone’s supply chain management to the max. Therefore it’s time to take a hard look at what’s working and what’s not in order to make the necessary adjustments for this year's holiday rush.

To help you perform your own holiday season assessment, here are two 25-Point checklists - one each for retailers and suppliers - to optimize your supply chain for the holidays.

If you're not fully automated, now is the time to assess how EDI and automation might improve your supply chain.

If you're already automated, use the checklist to review where you needed manual intervention to fix a problem in the past, and what can be done to prevent it from happening again this year.
