About the book

Retailers are being advised to review their supply chains in a bid to accelerate their speed to market. Fashion Logistics assesses the growth and changes in the industry as well as the drivers of change in the market. Supply chain networks and operations play an integral role in distributing product across the retail industry and significant changes within those networks have altered the way in which they function. Manufacturers therefore need to rethink their supply chains to make them resilient to shock, agile enough to respond quickly to sudden change, flexible enough to customize products and efficient enough to protect margins. Fashion Logistics assesses these forces and changes and how manufacturers should adapt their working practices accordingly.

This second edition of Fashion Logistics includes revised CSR and reshoring sections, updated case studies and new content on how manufacturers can adapt their working practices and the further demise of the department store sector.

More about David B. Grant

Fashion Logistics 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.
