Sourcing

Considering the growing complexity of the global requirements within the textile supply chain, the DTB founded the working-group „Sourcing“ a few years ago. Fluctuating exchange rates, volatile logistics costs and the ever-changing value of raw materials present major challenges to companies.
The DTB provides a platform for exchanging opinions and regularly invites companies to share their own experiences and solutions. We focus on logistics, quality management and IT solutions.
The annual information day „Sourcing“ offers the possibility to enter a conversation with representatives of different producing countries, get to know different sourcing strategies and internationally expand your network. In order to support our member companies in their international operations, the working-group „Country-Specific Requirements“ has developed a unique data base in cooperation with DTB member companies, Hansecontrol and GermanFashion. This data base contains the correct terms of fibre names, material names, textile components, care instructions and „Made-In“ in 40 different languages. This covers at least one official language of 85% of all countries in the world.

A selection of our service:

  • Information day “Sourcing“ (in English)
  • Information Day Texlog
  • Information days focussing on certain countries
  • The publication “Country-Specific Requirements“
