Imagine it’s 1988. A young ambitious man starts selling denim jackets from the boot of his car at Beckley Market in Geelong, Australia. Three-plus decades later, an established group with 20,000 employees, with 8 well-established brands and over 1,500 stores, supplies to 22 countries. That's the story of the Cotton On Group, a company from Australia that is reaching new heights. This apparel company is the quintessential nod to the outdoors. With a product range that spans every apparel vertical imaginable, the brands under the Cotton On Group emulate the Aussie way with a laid-back but down-to-earth attitude.
Their mission is to take this culture to the world. Not just with clothes, but with lifestyle as well.
Australia to the world: The challenges of going global
With the company growing leaps and bounds over the past few years, the logistics operations to take the group global needed a massive realignment of systems and processes. The need for a streamlined and seamless end-to-end supply chain was paramount. And while visibility solutions have improved on a global scale, they needed an interactive platform that involved all stakeholders to provide unparalleled transparency.
