Textile and clothing logistics
Vermilion is a company that specializes in acting as an intermediary in multiple branches of international trade. One of our particular areas of expertise is clothing logistics.The textile sector has been an essential part of Turkey’s economic history, where Vermilion has its roots. Our goal is to guarantee the continuation of this tradition by merging it with contemporary import-export techniques.
What does the logistics of textile and clothing entail?
It’s a complex process with multiple stages.
Initially, it includes obtaining raw materials, which consist of natural fibres (cotton, wool, linen, silk, etc.) and synthetic fibres (acrylic, nylon, polyester, etc.) acquired through industrial procedures from petrochemical products. At this point in the logistics chain, the main priority is to select suitable suppliers by validating their origins. Partnerships need to be formed with economic players like farmers, national or international traders, and industrial producers.
The next step in clothing logistics concerns the creation and manufacturing of clothing, leather goods, upholstery, furniture, and other products. Typically, orders are already underway during this phase. A logistics and textile import-export consultant must make certain that these orders are optimized. This involves forming successful partnerships with designers, dressmakers, manufacturers, dyers, and purchasing and sales managers.
Finally, the third stage of the process is the distribution itself. This involves carefully managing both physical shops and online platforms, no matter the type of sale selected, be it wholesale or retail. At this point, the logistics intermediary aids in coordinating the transportation of goods, as well as checking for different availabilities (like the state of warehouses) and keeping an eye on stocks, just to list a few examples. Retailers and carriers are some of the primary collaborators during this phase.
