Minimising common test failures - achieve global supply chain compliance
Manufacturers, retailers, importers and buying agents of textiles, clothing, leather and footwear must contend with ever-increasing consumer demands for consistent product quality. These stakeholders are also expected to keep up with the latest regulatory requirements while ensuring that their network of suppliers provides goods that meet the agreed specifications for safety, quality and quantity. To address these challenges, it is beneficial to engage solutions for testing, inspection and auditing that cover all aspects of your global supply chain while allowing you to remain cost competitive in the face of a tough global economic climate.
Why are global supply chain solutions important for your business?
A global supply chain solution can help you to manage and prevent failures such as dimensional stability; pilling; low tear/ tensile strength; the presence of PCP, formaldehyde or organotin compounds; colour fastness to crocking; and colour fastness to washing, among others. By preventing these failures from the onset, you can mitigate cost overruns and keep your business on track, ensuring compliance to relevant standards and consumer satisfaction.
