Supply Chain Management


The biggest challenges currently facing the global apparel supply chain include:

  • rising costs for energy, fuel, manufacturing, and raw materials
  • fiber shortage and price volatility
  • political and economic uncertainty
  • pressure to integrate supply-chains
  • implications of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)  

To succeed in this challenging environment, brands must establish short supply chains, long-term relationships with their suppliers, improve efficiency in their manufacturing process and develop closed-looped systems. Some of my areas of expertise include:

  • supply chain redesign
  • improving transparency and traceability 
  • responsible sourcing and manufacturing
  • low impact design 
  • lifecycle assessment
  • packaging alternatives
  • waste stream management
  • material toxicity and regulations
