Retail logistics is responsible for making products available to end customers. Traditionally, this was facilitated through a network of brick and mortar stores that customers visit to buy items. However, the advent of online and omnichannel retail started to challenge this established system. Modern-day customers increasingly buy a product not solely for its features but also for how, and how fast, the item is delivered and/or returned. Such customer behavior shows that retail logistics often is the decisive factor when searching for, purchasing, and using goods and services. Consequently, logistics performance has become increasingly important for marketing performance.
