Investors and consumers alike are driving pressures for transparency, influencing companies of all kinds to obtain greater visibility across the value chain to trace the origins of products. But navigating the origins of a single apparel or accessories product is complex, with a single pair of sneakers touching upwards of 80 unique suppliers. Often used interchangeably, traceability refers to the steps a product takes throughout the value chain, whereas transparency can refer to the sharing of all types of information from sustainability to general operations. This conversation will highlight the challenges and opportunities apparel and accessories brands have on managing their supply chains. Learn how to start to map your supply chain, what types of market value supply chain visibility enables, and the technologies helping brands achieve greater transparency.
