Book Description

The fashion industry has a dynamic, ever-changing landscape. The last decade has seen a shift in consumer expectations and a heightened dependence on efficient and effective supply chain management. These shifts in the consumer mentality have already forced apparel retailers to adapt, making changes throughout their organisations to maintain consumer loyalty. This new text provides an overview of the latest trends and advances in fashion supply chain management and logistics, including:

  • The fundamentals of fashion supply chain management
  • Strategic management of the fashion supply chain, including the planning aspect of management 
  • Technology in fashion supply chain management
  • Radio-frequency identification (RFID) and interoperability

Drawing on the expertise of academics, researchers and industry experts, including a wealth of real-life international cases, this book is ideal for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students and academics of fashion management, logistics and supply chain management, as well as practising professionals.
