New eBook: Discover the seven logistics trends that are disrupting the fashion and lifestyle industries

12 March 2024  |  General Logistics

2023 has been a year of constant change in the retail landscape, and the logistics industry has found a number of innovative solutions to adapt and help clients thrive. In our new white paper, we explore the seven logistics trends that have been impacting the fashion and lifestyle industries and how they will continue to evolve in the years to come.

Sustainability, the new mission in fashion

More and more fashion consumers are making their purchasing decisions based on sustainability considerations. Recognising this trend, the most committed brands are looking at the very beginning of their supply chains and sourcing raw materials that are kinder to the environment. This requires full supply chain visibility, which has traditionally been complex to achieve in the fashion industry. And with the wave of new sustainability regulations coming into force, these considerations have never been more important.

Smarter logistics and real-time data pave the way

Data is critical for companies looking to reduce their environmental impact, particularly in the logistics industry. Forward-thinking logistics companies are increasingly collecting data on a range of variables across their operations, including energy consumption, kilometres driven and total carbon emissions. Analysing this data can reveal emissions hotspots and empower decision-makers to make more meaningful changes. Whether it’s choosing less-polluting modes of transport, using recycled materials, or implementing a re-commerce solutions, using data well helps ensure that every euro spent has the maximum positive impact.

Robots to the rescue in the e-commerce sustainability race

Many warehouses already use robots, and most will use them much more in the future. Implementing the principles of Industry 4.0, including increased digitalisation and automation, will help make distribution centres fit for the challenges of tomorrow. For example, seamless communication via the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will allow robots will be able to work ever more closely with humans. And look out for autonomous driving vehicles and drones delivering parcels directly to customers – it’s no longer science fiction!

Driving the future of logistics

From rising costs and talent shortages to growing consumer expectations around sustainability, the number of logistics issues facing fashion and lifestyle brands can feel overwhelming. But as the world of e-commerce logistics becomes increasingly complex and fast-paced, working with the right partner can help you take a more informed view of the challenges ahead.
