Optimizing an Apparel Company's Supply Chain

Learn how BCG partnered with a large European apparel company to improve its supply chain and cut costs.

"Apparel Company" is a large European producer of fashion apparel. The company sources globally, distributes through mono-brand stores, and has five different apparel brands.

Over the last ten years the company's sales had become stagnant. It had lost its position as the industry sales leader, and its profitability lagged that of its peers.

BCG was brought in to reduce supply chain costs and strengthen the company's brand by making the stores more uniform.
