Abercrombie & Fitch has extended its contract with GT Nexus to expand its cloud-based supply chain strategy and improve visibility into the movement of orders, payments and goods.

The service has been in place at Abercrombie & Fitch since 2010, and is aimed at supporting international sourcing and supplier collaboration. The retailer operates 1,053 apparel stores in 20 countries across the Abercrombie & Fitch, Abercrombie Kids, Hollister Co, and Gilly Hicks brands.

"GT Nexus simplifies the way we manage global commerce and allows us to work in a transparent, efficient environment," said Larry Grischow, group vice president of supply chain for Abercrombie & Fitch.

“We are able to transact more efficiently with suppliers around the world in ways that simply weren't possible previously. We have fewer people answering calls from factories and handling paper invoices, and more staff focused on strategic initiatives to support our growth.”
