As part of a group-wide global supply chain initiative, UK retail giant Arcadia Group is deploying global trade management software across all its brands and territories.

The Global Trade Management software from Amber Road will help the retailer automate its key import, export, supply chain visibility, and trade planning activities.

And it is part of a larger, group-wide initiative to improve how the company manages the sourcing, manufacturing and delivery of its products, worldwide.

With well-known brands including Burton, Dorothy Perkins, Evans, Miss Selfridge, Topshop, Topman and Wallis, Arcadia Group has more than 2,500 outlets across the UK and concessions in major UK department stores.

Internationally, The Arcadia Group is expanding rapidly, with its brands sold worldwide through franchise partners in 38 countries, and delivering on-line to more than 110 countries. 

The Amber Road solution will provide the retail group with a fully integrated global trade platform, through which it can optimise global sourcing decisions, providing easy access to country-specific import and export regulations, and improve visibility over its orders and track international shipments.

The solution will be implemented worldwide, enabling Arcadia to adopt best practices for trade across all its brands and territories.
