About the book

Fashion Logistics examines the principles and practices behind responsible fashion retailing and cost-effective supply chain management in the fashion industry.

Fashion Logistics assesses the early growth and changes in the industry as well as the drivers of change in the market. Important forces are driving tremendous changes in the retail industry, particularly in supply chain networks and operations. Manufacturers therefore need to re-think their supply chains so that they are resilient enough to withstand shocks, agile enough to respond quickly to sudden change, flexible enough to customise products, and efficient enough to protect margins. John Fernie and David Grant assess these forces and changes, and how manufacturers should adapt their working practices accordingly.

Fashion Logistics integrates case studies of best practice that demonstrate successful fashion retail supply chains of leading companies such as Benetton, Burberry, Schuh and M&S. The book provides vital figures, tables and mini-cases in each chapter, along with a discussion question at the end of each mini-case, references and suggested readings.

More about David B. Grant

This new book on Fashion Logistics by Fernie and Grant looks at the changing nature of fashion retailing and the implications of these changes for logistics. Each chapter contains an up-to-the minute case study illustrating how some of the major retailers around the world have adapted their supply chains to deal with the on-line revolution and changes in the global market place. Whilst the book will provide essential reading for students studying logistics and supply chain management, the book will be equally relevant for students studying fashion and retailing, particularly the topics such as the rise of fast fashion, luxury brands and sustainability.
