Apparel fulfillment services allow online apparel merchants to evolve with fashion trends, respond to market needs, and turn over inventory quickly. Fashion is a fickle industry with short product lifecycles that revolve around seasons, trends, and locations, and have huge product variation between women’s, men’s, and children’s wear and sizes.
Within some retail categories, vast segments of the market are monopolized by a few large brands. When it comes to apparel, each retailer must constantly stake their claim to develop and maintain a customer base. In turn, apparel merchants face higher standards in customer satisfaction and must ensure brand loyalty. However, the apparel industry has room for smaller brands to secure a portion of the market next to national retailers.
Of course, tastes and trends in fashion change in months and even weeks. Thus, online retailers must be flexible, responsive, and open to quickly change course. Choosing the right apparel fulfillment service can make or break an apparel retailer. A good apparel retailer will enable a company to grow and continue to support them as sales increase – all while maintaining the same high-quality level of service.
