Printable Version Fashion (Apparel) & Luxury Goods Industry
If you’re going to land that reorder, you have to get 4,000 meters of fabric air-freighted from China , cleared through customs and trucked to two different plants in Florence by Tuesday. London can handle 11,000 more units, but only if you can get the pewter clips to the manufacturer tomorrow. What about that hot new style about to be unloaded at the distribution center? The buyer now wants it shipped straight to all 800 stores instead.
Anyone who knows fashion and luxury knows that it’s not just about getting products from A to B. It’s about being as flexible as spandex and as reliable as gold. And of course, it’s about timing. So you need every advantage when it comes to shipping, such as express services to get your products there on time. And visibility tools that show you the locations of shipments in transit — which helps you plan your line and keep your promises. With FedEx, you get those advantages and more, such as coverage to 220 countries and territories internationally. Not to mention overnight service from the company that pioneered the concept. That way, everyone from the designers and distribution centers to the buyers is happy. And you can get an early start on planning next season's lineup.
