Order management, multichannel fulfilment, white glove delivery and reverse logistics – we offer many retail shipping, transport and logistics options tailored for the retail industry.
Logistics for the retailing and fashion industries need to be highly flexible as rapid growth and exponential change are the standard, not the exception. Managing logistics in fashion markets requires supply chains that are increasingly reactive with technology that can help teams make decisions on urgent demand. Goods that sell steadily throughout the year need different models of supply chain than seasonal items with short shelf lives.
