In retail, point of sale capability is directly tied to factories and supplier cooperation. For example, Walmart’s trucking and GPS, cross-dock warehouse load and unload operations, and RFID enable their supply chain to be fast and on-time (i.e., reliable). Outsourcing and supplier discounts for huge order sizes give Walmart much power in the global supply chains. Competitors such as Target, Safeway, and Costco have copied many of their methods and practices, so Walmart’s competitive advantage has diminished.
Using Walmart’s case as an example, select another company, and review their competitive advantage. How does the company use the competitive priority cost to its competitive advantage? Research, then explain, and provide examples.
