E-commerce has enabled rapid growth within the fashion industry (apparel) in recent years thanks to permanent product availability and quick delivery. The luxury of trying on clothing at home, coupled with free returns and low incentive pricing due to increased competition, have seen a drastic rise in the demands on internal material flows for both manufacturers and retailers.
Serving multiple sales channels vastly increases the complexity of the logistics processes. Modern customers expect far more than simply low prices. They also expect the best possible service in a timely manner.
