Any sort of disruption in the supply chain can lead to a huge loss for the apparel company. To have a minimal impact on their supply chain, apparel companies have redefined the selection process for choosing their logistics players.
“Logistics providers have been categorized into three groups, based on the new selection criteria. They are primary level logistics providers, secondary level logistics providers, and tertiary level logistics providers. The logistics player provides only truckload, audit, and other related services in the primary level. In the secondary level, the logistics player offers brokerage, less than truckload, and other similar services. In the tertiary level logistics players will be providing complete logistics functions such as warehousing and third-party logistics services. The evaluation criteria employed by apparel contract manufacturers are compelling the logistics players to have self-assessment performance metrics to survive in the competitive market,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on .
