A leading American lifestyle brand made its way to Jordan seeking new manufacturing opportunities and made the most of it with Maersk's integrated solutions.

When a prominent American lifestyle brand specialising in outdoor sportswear aimed to expand its influence in the region, it adopted a distinctive approach by establishing its manufacturing base in Jordan. The plan involved a 20% increase in apparel manufacturing for 2024 and an ambitious 50% growth (by volume) over the next 5 years.

Curious about the choice of Jordan? Globally, there has been a dynamic shift, expressing confidence in Jordan's manufacturing capabilities, duty-free benefits, and its strategic geographical advantage for a global supply chain.

All Paths Lead To Jordan

All paths lead to Jordan

Jordan's vision for economic modernisation places a strong emphasis on advancing its manufacturing sector and establishing robust logistics facilities tailored to global fashion and lifestyle brands. Recognising the pivotal role of these industries in the global market, Jordan aims to create a conducive environment for innovation and efficiency.

By investing in state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and optimising logistics networks, Jordan aspires to position itself as a hub for the production and distribution of high-quality fashion and lifestyle products. This forward-looking approach not only bolsters the nation's economic growth but also elevates its standing in the global marketplace, attracting investment and fostering sustainable development.

The location offers a lead-time advantage, with its proximity to the US and Europe resulting in reduced transit time.

Vendor Managment

Duty benefits lead to cost savings. While calculating the total cost of manufactured products, customers consider all the materials comprising various elements. As the product is shipped to the US, Canada and other markets, no duty is levied.

One network multiple players

Diversification of the global source base is crucial. Despite intermittent conflicts in certain neighbouring countries, Jordan stands out as a beacon of stability, safety and resilience. It provides a secure haven for businesses, fostering a conducive environment for operations and growth.
