Presenter Information

Teresa McCarthy, Bryant University

Start Date

13-4-2022 4:00 PM

Description

Supply chain issues have plagued the textile and apparel industry throughout the pandemic due to worker shortages, crowded ports, and cargo ships getting stuck. Some decisions go beyond concerns about the pandemic; specifically, deciding which model to use for which product. Functional products with stable predictability may be transported from offshore production facilities via container ship while innovative products are worth higher transportation costs to assure on-time delivery. Teresa McCarthy explained many aspects of the supply chain as they affect fashion retail in her presentation with special attention to Zara.
