FASHION INDUSTRY

The logistics requirements in the fashion and apparel segment are characterized by retail processes with a distinction between wholesale and retail customers and high demands on omni-channel and returns logistics. Technically, the high number of article variants and the rapid change of the assortment is always a challenge for controlling IT systems. SAP offers a wide range of options for integrating special processes via extended returns processing or cross-docking with integrated value-added service – the standard processes are usually not sufficient for the requirements of fashion logistics and a large number of industry-specific process adaptations are necessary. SWAN supports them with extensive experience in their project.

POUCH SORTER

A pouch sorter enables space-saving buffering, sorting and sequencing of flat and hanging goods at high throughput rates. The automated sorter solution puts customer orders and returns in an order specified by SAP EWM. With the diverse data from the SAP ecosystem, decisions in the business process regarding prioritization, time-to-deliver or transport consolidation can be made at the right moment. In close interaction with the intelligent SSI WAMAS matrix sorting, which is connected to SAP EWM via IDOC and web interfaces, they get full transparency about their delivery performance.

VALUE ADDED SERVICES

In the fashion and apparel segment, there has always been a high demand for logistical, industry-specific additional services, which we optimally integrate into the warehouse process with our SAP EWM solutions. Thus, on the basis of customer, store and article requirements, corresponding material transports to VAS workstations are triggered in order to convert hanging garments to lying garments or to install anti-theft protection. Other common value-added services in the fashion distribution warehouse include price labeling (red and black prices), relabeling of articles, store preparation in which the store structure (fashion, sports, men’s & women’s departments) is produced, and increasingly also the documentation of sustainability processes.
