UNIQUE SURVEY: The Modern Supply Chain: What’s Going On?


AAPN strongly endorses this survey. The investment actions of our members are depending on the outcome. There is no other survey like it. Take it. Ask others to take it. And above all else, demand that your suppliers take it! Thank you……..Mike Todaro

The Modern Supply Chain: What's Going On?

Apparel retailers and brand managers have continued to increase their dependence on China and the Far East over the past decades. The end of apparel import quotas in 2005 completely opened the floodgates to an “all Asia all the time” supply chain.

This has created challenges of its own. The supply chain is long, and somewhat slow. Further, conventional wisdom had it that factories in the Americas couldn’t produce on-time and consistently, but we believe that has changed. And the constant threat of tariffs has raised the ante.

This unique benchmark will survey apparel retailers and brand managers as well as factories located in the Western Hemisphere. The goal is to see if near-sourcing is viable, practical, and dependable.

To get a true sense of the status of the industry, we need your help! The survey should only take about 10 minutes to complete, and we really look forward to hearing from you. Click here to start: https://www.research.net/r/SMYVR9R?utm_campaign=SCSurvey1&utm_source=SC-Survey-1-11-8-19&utm_medium=email
