Offshore hub reduces costs and improves supply chain flow

Lower cost processing at an offshore hub and exacting vendor management practices bring predictability and cost savings to an Australian clothier’s supply chain. Agility manages direct-to-store volumes through an origin hub in China where merchandise is labeled and price tagged before being shipped to distribution centers for online sales and to the merchant’s network of more than 100 stores in Australia. Inbound orders received by Agility’s robust vendor management solution are processed in the hub where co-loads are created for under-sized volumes or merchandize is consolidated according to store orders. This eliminates higher cost processing at the retailer’s main distribution center in Australia by reducing unit costs, eliminating congestion and achieving cash cycle improvements.
