French carmaker Renault SA may raise prices on cars it exports to Britain as a result of the Brexit vote and the falling pound. The British pound has fallen more than 10% to the dollar, causing companies impacted by fluctuations in Britain's currency to make new plans for business.

Wal-Mart is offering a 30-day trial of its two-day shipping service, ShippingPass. The service is similar to Amazon Prime, but costs less at $49 a year.

Infor announced it has acquired Predictix, which provides data analytics solutions for retailers. Predictix solutions will become part of Infor’s CloudSuite Retail enterprise applications for the retail industry.

Food traceability software-as-a-service provider FoodLogiQ has partnered with 1WorldSync, a product information network, to improve supply chain traceability. FoodLogiQ Connect software will include 1WorldSync’s tools so customers can better trace product information through the supply chain.
