FASHION LOGISTICS

The fast moving industry of fashion retail today comprises of a complex combination of organized retail POSs (Points of Sale) offering a single category or a combination of wearing apparel, footwear, accessories and sports apparel. The development of the fast fashion, demands lean and agile supply chain concepts as never before.

Cyprus Fashion Environment

Cyprus differs from the major European markets:
 
  • Cyprus is an island and as a result the continental short and financially effective road transport is not available. Therefore, fashion retail has been mainly supplied by expensive air freight combined with limited sea freight at the beginning of SS (Spring-Summer) and FW (Fall - Winter) seasons

  • Small businesses are a characteristic of the Cyprus business set up. 98% of the businesses are SMEs (Small & Medium size enterprises). This fact is partly represented in the Fashion retail. As a result, non-organized retail, suffers from high logistics costs of small orders of lower values

  • Infrastructure at most POSs is poor in terms of receiving facilities. This extends the time spent at the POS and it is therefore reflected in the logistics cost

  • Unlike SME, electronic ordering and invoicing is developed only among international brands’ stores
