Globally integrated production systems, seasonal peaks and rapid changeovers from one collection to another are just a few examples why intelligent and flexible logistics solutions are so important to the fashion industry. The rapidly changing nature of fashion is best personified by celebrity-driven trends.

In order to stay relevant and profitable, apparel companies have to respond quickly to changes in consumer demand.
