How to secure and make your supply chain more agile?

How to respond to transformation challenges to secure and make your supply chain more agile?

The question of supply chain transformation and the use of technology to optimize operations arises. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become essential for fashion brands to work faster with suppliers around the world to quickly meet consumer demand. Linear operating methods are obsolete and brands must learn to work differently as a team. Suppliers must be placed at the center of the relationship and are now considered true partners rather than participants in a simple transaction.   


Faced with these problems, it is necessary to act in particular through two actions. Firstly, the challenge is to secure its supply chain and then to make it more agile to improve its service rate.   

Securing your supply chain, a major challenge

Managing your supply chain while limiting risks and dysfunctions has become complex . An error in a single step can impact the rest of the chain, like a domino effect.

So to secure this supply chain, it is important to:  


○ Diversify sourcing areas . This diversification ensures monitoring and security at the supplier level. This first point is essential for 84% of French companies who wish to evolve their purchasing strategy in terms of risk analysis and supplier portfolio (according to JLL, in its article “Supply Chain Transformation: 3 major challenges in 2023 ! ) .


○ Produce as accurately as possible and on time. Faced with the abundance of products, this idea responds not only to an environmental approach but also to securing its supply chain. Without excess products, errors or the risk of errors in the production part are reduced.


Meet quality and compliance requirements. By structuring production and meeting quality and compliance requirements, production and all stages of the supply chain will thus be optimized, always with the aim of limiting risks. 


○ Optimizing logistics and transport times  is an objective not to be missed.
