Handling massive retail chain’s air and ocean volume, even in emergency
Agility manages the high-volume, global supply chain of a Spanish multinational clothing retailer. We ship to 5,500 stores worldwide from 11 sites in four countries, and export to four countries with more than 300 suppliers. That amounts to 14,000 tons of air volume and 120,000 cubic meters of ocean volume moved in one year! Our consolidation center in Colombo handles cargo from India and Bangladesh into Argentina and Brazil. Back-to-back charter transport allows us to maintain an unbroken supply chain even in emergencies, like the 2010 volcanic ash incident that shut down airspace in Europe. Beyond emergencies, we offer deferred transit time service for Spain that cuts airfreight costs by 20%. Agility’s technology applications ensure that stores are refreshed each week with new styles, no matter what.
