SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, has published an article looking at the challenges affecting clothing and footwear manufacturers, their impact on supply chains and the ways they can ensure the delivery of high-quality products to global markets.
Global, linear supply chains have reduced clothing costs but in a disconnected world, many brands are looking to diversify, utilizing a greater number of suppliers, often with shorter transport routes, to ensure consistency and continuity. This can have a major impact on quality control.
SGS’s Consumer Compact article looks at the problem from the perspective of the brand or retailer. It covers the challenges facing the industry, considers a better way to manage supply chains and details the benefits of upstream solutions.
