How We Help Fashion & Apparel Supply Chain Customers Close Their Gaps
Closing the Visibility Gap With Ergobaby
As Ergobaby grew internationally, so did its supply chain complexity, with visibility into logistics milestones and other business critical data becoming increasingly hard to track. Together, we helped Ergobaby close the visibility gap by digitising its supply chain with greater accuracy, predictability and collaboration – onboarding more than ten suppliers and reducing delivery time by 2-3 days.
Closing the Sustainability Gap With O My Bag
As a retailer with a strong sense of purpose, O My Bag was very concerned about its freight activity emissions. But with a complex and world-spanning supply chain, changes were easier said than done. So, it teamed up with Flexport to close the sustainability gap and uncover its exact emissions, leading to a carbon footprint reduction of 18% in 2021 alone.
Closing the Network Gap With NA-KD
NA-KD was struggling to meet customer demand in the extremely fast-paced world of online fashion commerce. Growing complexity due to a wide network of suppliers, designers and manufacturers, coupled with short merchandise cycles, was making it difficult to maintain accuracy, availability and reliability. Flexport worked with NA-KD’s logistics team to digitalize its largely manual system and close the network gap – achieving 57% business growth in one year with improved supply chain management.
