Retail Supply Chain

Our Focus

Retailers rely on complex global supply chains to ensure customers have access to the products they need and want at the best possible prices. RILA recognizes that a focus on ubiquitous internet access, changing consumer values, preferences, and lifestyles, coupled with the desire for increased on-demand shopping, have led to unprecedented disruption in virtually every industry. Retail perhaps more than any other.  As we look ahead to what’s on the horizon, RILA will continue to promote innovation, education and communication throughout the supply chain to accelerate what’s possible.
