The traditional differentiation between "brick and mortar business" and "mail order business" sales channels has merged into one omnichannel model. E-commerce in the fashion industry has experienced rapid growth thanks to permanent goods availability and fast delivery. The possibility to try on clothes in front of your own mirror, free returns, and low prices thanks to intense competition have significantly increased the demands in the internal material flow for producers and retailers.
Especially when dealing with multiple sales channels, the complexity of the logistic processes increases. Customers expect favorable prices and also best possible service – both online as well as in-store. A flawless cross-channel shopping experience, such as buying online and collecting the items at a store (“Click and Collect”), must be guaranteed.
