Robert Garrison of NFI will be speaking at the RILA Supply Chain Conference on Monday with Joe Barbieri, Five Below Director of Supply Chain. In the panel titled Strategies for Managing International Excellence – Capitalizing on the Current Landscape, Barbieri and Garrison will outline how they accomplished global inventory optimization while in high-growth mode.
“The story of our relationship with Five Below is a compelling one and I’m excited to share it with the supply chain industry,” said Garrison. “It’s another example of how we listen to and understand our clients’ needs and identify their biggest pain points. We then use that understanding to select the appropriate solutions and leverage current methodologies, so that we deliver an optimal supply chain experience.”
During the discussion, retailers will hear the story of Five Below and be offered insights into the processes and strategies that led to its success and lessons learned. With the leverage of a global 3PL partner, Five Below can access the people, technology, facilities, and carriers of their combined networks. Additionally, NFI will share their view of working as an international 3PL, how flexibility in supporting a business like Five Below’s is crucial, and in what ways 3PL relationships develop.
