Inditex’s Footwear Company Had a Record Year

When it’s deliver-or-die, supply chains become the lifeblood of a company. To that end, the fashion industry has embraced technology to navigate today’s hyper-complicated supply chain, with myriad solutions shaping the first, middle and last mile. Call it Sourcing 2.0.

Inditex Group footwear subsidiary, Tempe, reached a new milestone.

The company, which manufactures fast fashion footwear for Inditex’s eight brands including Zara, Pull&Bear and Massimo Dutti, surpassed $1.27 million in sales for the first time during 2016. It was a 10 percent increase over the previous year’s sales.

Tempe has two logistics centers in Spain’s footwear manufacturing region, Elche. The centers provide footwear and accessories to the Group’s stores all over the world twice a week, sending more than 50 million pairs of shoes every year worldwide.

The company also has subsidiaries in Mexico, Brazil, Switzerland and China, allowing for quick turnaround.

The Inditex retail model has become an aspirational strategy for many struggle brick-and-mortar retailers. Known as the Zara Gap, the company has become an example of how to replenish stores almost instantly and beat competitors to trends.
