Pre-built Functionality to Support Multiple Apparel and
Footwear Manufacturing OEM Business Models

Make to Order

Goods are produced specifically for a customer order and shipped through a distribution centre. Cutting and sewing takes place at the same manufacturing facility.

Cut and Sew in Separate Plants

Goods are produced for a forecast or specific customer order; cutting and sewing takes place at different manufacturing facility. Forecast quantities are consumed when customers place orders.

Subcontracting a Partial Quantity to a Vendor

Goods are produced for a forecast or specific customer order partially in-house and the balance is subcontracted to a third party vendor for manufacturing and delivery to the factory. Forecast quantities are consumed when customers place orders.

First Sale for Export (FSFE) Model

Declare the goods to Customs using the 'first sale', which is the transaction between the manufacturer and the vendor, which excludes the vendor's markup, thereby lowering the customs value of the goods and the amount of duties payable.
