Levi Strauss & Co. Optimizes Global Supply Chain

Founded in 1853 by Bavarian immigrant Levi Strauss, Levi Strauss & Co. is one of the world's largest brand-name apparel marketers with sales in more than 110 countries. Levi's, Dockers and Levi Strauss Signature branded products are sold through more than 55,000 retail locations worldwide, including 138 company-owned stores and more than 1,100 franchised stores around the world. As part of an effort to optimize its global sourcing operations, Levi Strauss & Co. recently sought help to automate processes from procurement through payment. The company selected TradeCard, a provider of on-demand supply chain management solutions, to eliminate manual processes that require physical handling and viewing of paper documents for purchase orders, invoices and compliance checking. The on-demand platform is expected to connect Leviís back-end with key partners in the supply chain, including vendors, buyers, customs agents and financial institutions, and complement the companyís SAP Apparel and Footwear Solution (AFS) investment. With go-live planned in early 2008, Leviís will bring 225 vendors from Europe, Asia and the Americas onto the TradeCard Platform.
