The cost pressures facing high street fashion retailers will come under scrutiny at the Logistics Manager Summit which takes place at Sandown Park on 26th June.
Richard Brodrick, logistics manager at Crew Clothing, will cover Crew’s logistics cost reduction strategy and further cost reduction plans over the short to medium term.
Brodrick will also consider how retailers can reduce costs without compromising service or product availability across multiple sales channels.
The summit will also include a presentation from John Lewis focusing on meeting the growing demands of multi-channel retailing.
The Summit is a chance to hear how you can reduce transport costs by up to 30 per cent through collaborative, multi-modal process flow.
It will also be a forum to discuss collaborative distribution models and connecting key stakeholders to improve end to end supply chain integration.
The John Lewis case study will include an overview of the automated systems already in place at the company’s Milton Keynes mega-shed and plans for the future.
Speakers will examine specific costs facing high-street fashion retailers and give advice on reducing spend over the short to medium term, without disrupting product flow and dissatisfying customers.
Companies already registered to attend include Tesco, Dixons, Birds Eye, Wilkinson, Arla Foods, Sony, Debenhams, Kenwood DèLonghi, Long Tall Sally, Alcatel-Lucent and many more.
