Different Aspects of Fashion Logistics

Fashion logistics includes multiple aspects that complete the package:

After the products have been manufactured they need to be placed in storage. Additionally it is essential that all of the items have been tagged and added to the inventory so they can be managed and tracked throughout their entire time in the supply chain. They also need to be categorized into different categories such as size, color  style, material or type.  All of this information has to be done meticulously as any mistakes can cause losses, trouble when it comes to locating the items, delays and loss of revenue.

The next step provided in fashion logistics is the physical act of picking the goods from the warehouses and packing them up ready to be loaded onto the transportation so they can be delivered to their next destination – be it a retail store, alternative warehousing in a different country or direct to a customer. This is known as order fulfilment and it’s not as easy as it sounds. The largest companies can have thousands of orders placed each day – all of which have to be picked, packed and delivered often within 24 hours.

Fashion logistics is complex and requires great resources and strict management in order to make the process run smoothly.
