During Fashion Week, the latest styles appeared online within seconds of coming down the runway. There’s no time to waste. People see it, and they want it, now.
This same immediacy applies to a retailer’s supply chain. You don’t want to wait until next year to rock the fall trends from the designers and luxury brands.
UPS small business customer J. Hilburn knows about high-end clothing – specializing in custom-made shirts and suits at affordable prices. Their clothing is made of fabric from the finest mills in Italy, but you won’t need your passport. Clients meet with a style consultant who takes measurements and puts in an order, and in about three weeks, the tailor-made pieces arrive.
J. Hilburn handles the style and UPS takes care of the speed. Watch the video below to see how we work together to deliver a custom shirt – from Atlanta (where the customer is) to Malaysia (where the shirt is made) to Dallas (where J. Hilburn is) and back to Atlanta – all seamlessly.
