A fashion giant gains a competitive edge by adopting an integrated supply chain model with Maersk, that enhances its efficiency and agility.
The backgroundA renowned American fashion giant found itself tangled in a knotty supply chain chaos. The fast-paced world of fashion was moving at warp speed, while their upstream operations were stuck in slow motion. This had a domino effect, impacting everything from product availability to business performance.
The challengeThe fashion company's supply chain was a complex imbalance of operations, lost in its inefficiencies. Lacking a central conductor to harmonise the flow of goods, each stage in the supply chain operated in isolation. Factories in Bangladesh, Kenya and Egypt - functioned independently, sourcing raw materials from scattered suppliers across the Far East.
This fragmented approach led to a series of logistical challenges, like:

Maersk stepped up to this responsibility, taking control and managing the entire supply chain journey from raw materials to finished clothing. This involved several key initiatives:

Through innovative, tailored solutions, Maersk cemented its position as a key strategic partner within the global supply chain, particularly in the dynamic and demanding Fashion industry.
