} Retail & Distribution - Strand

Retail & Distribution

Both innovative e-commerce companies and traditional retailers experience the same operational challenges: a desired product is expected to be available right away and/or delivered preferably the same day. The gaps in Belgian legislation are making it difficult to compete with neighbouring countries.

A team of Retail & Distribution experts to scope your need for talent

Even though they combine 15+ years of business consultancy experience, our associates are intensively and continuously trained, so they have the knowledge and experience to understand your industry challenges:

  • On-demand retail: convenient delivery methods, short delivery time, personalized shopping experience …;
  • Continuous increase in online spending & the lack of clear legislation favors the e-tailers;
  • The rise of technology platforms to answer the need for data-driven business decisions;
  • Unique in-store experiences to compete with online customer intimacy;
  • Same-day shipping as the industry norm;
