Industry Experience

Apparel and Specialty Retail

This is an industry sector characterised by intense competition with the advent of global sourcing and online channels. It’s at the sharp end of consumers’ changing preferences and requires nimble and dynamic supply chain solutions to match.

Our strategy, design and delivery work in this sector is a reflection of the many years we have spent problem solving in this space. No two business are alike and customizing to uniqueness is the hallmark of our work with clients across the ASEAN region including Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Indonesia and China.

The industry supply chain problems we have solved across this sector include:

  • Designing the optimal network embracing online and store replenishment
  • International supply chain design to accommodate global sourcing changes
  • Ecommerce fulfilment and central versus store approaches
  • Product availability and supply chain speed of product to market
  • Supply chain design for replenishment versus allocation items
  • Warehouse systems requirements
  • Storage and pick of widely differing product attributes
  • Merger and acquisition due diligence
  • Procurement of industrial property and resolution of unwanted leases

Our recent projects have included the future distribution network strategy and subsequent distribution centre design for an ANZ specialty fashion retailer. The national warehouse is now fully operational and delivering substantial benefits to our client. We have also recently designed a new greenfield national distribution centre for the region’s largest growing fashion retailer. The Design challenge included the seamless incorporation of online order processing from the national DC.

Outside of bricks and mortar retailing, we recently redesigned a distribution centre for an online business based in Singapore – removing the distribution bottlenecks this dynamic business was experiencing.
