Posted by Clarissa Willis on Wed, May, 22 2019 @ 10:30 AM

Fashion is a tricky business, and gaining cost, quality and speed advantages can be difficult to do in an already complicated and competitive market. There are seasonal changes where products must be designed, developed, sourced, tested and imported and exported in a limited amount of time. Of course, this increased pressure to move quicker in getting products to market can make it more difficult to maintain a quality. If this wasn't enough to deal with, there are also the chaos customers create by not following trends, often making demand unpredictable. The list of challenges goes on and on. However, amid these ongoing struggles, and fluctuations in the global economy over the last few years, the footwear and apparel industry still has a chance to successfully adapt and thrive.

Get Your Reality Check – A Supply Chain Technology Innovation Benchmark Study

Posted by Lacey Pierce on Thu, Mar, 14 2019 @ 1:15 PM

As technology evolves and disrupts our industry, it is important to take a step back and get a “reality check” on the usefulness of these technologies, especially as leaders are looking for new innovative technologies to give their companies a competitive advantage in the market. It can be difficult to separate out the hype surrounding these new technologies from the reality. This industry report, Reality Check: Supply Chain Technology Innovation Benchmark Study, works to help you do just that.

American Shipper’s Ben Meyer surveyed 296 supply chain stakeholders to more closely examine the trends around investment in both current and futuristic supply chain technologies. By doing this, he hopes to determine not only how the industry feels about new technologies, but how serious they are about implementing them in their own company.

New White Paper - How Are Companies Using Technology to Address Global Trade Woes?

Posted by Lacey Pierce on Tue, Feb, 19 2019 @ 10:00 AM

2019 was filled with turbulence, both in the geopolitical sphere and the technological one. This created waves throughout the supply chain and trade industry. AAEI and Amber Road worked together on their 3rd Annual Trade Trends Report to determine how companies in the industry are using supply chain technology. Are companies focused on automating previously manual processes? Are they simply using technology to collect data? By interviewing over 100 supply chain professionals, we hope to answer these questions and allow other professionals in the industry to use this data as a benchmark or as a source of data to make informed decisions for their company.

Supply Chain 4.0, otherwise known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, has been at the forefront of the industry’s mind. With companies experiencing the backlash of the “Amazon Effect,” they are looking to technology to help them meet the 6 “Rs” of supply chain execution. The “Rs” are the right partner, with the right product, at the right price, in the right place, and right time with the right compliance. This is what companies who want to compete in evolving markets are focused on.

2018 is fading fast. Even though global trade and commerce has been lively all year, not all regions and industries are seeing a comparable benefit.
