As the 2013 calendar year comes to a close, the RTR partners want to take this opportunity to express their sincere appreciation to our readers and followers. We understand how valuable your time is and we are grateful for your continued interest in following RTR’s progress. We hope you have found our monthly news articles valuable and we will continue to bring you pertinent newsletters in 2014.
This month’s newsletter focuses on logistics, a timely subject given the holiday shopping frenzy that is underway. Today’s emphasis on ecommerce or buying it online and having it shipped to our doorstep is a cornerstone of the holiday season. RTR Technologies, an operations research consulting firm, employs experts in logistics to support our DOD, federal, and commercial clients and so we are constantly studying the science and successes in industry as they innovate to improve logistics performance.
