1. Introduction
The Inditex model of production is a
reversal of traditional clothing cycles
as it is a ‘pull’ type production process
rather than ‘push’.
 Zara responds quickly to demand via a
pull model which responds to realtime sales information from its stores.
 Small batch quantities allow the
retailer to see what items are working
with shoppers.
 A central distribution centre in
Arteixo, with strong IT systems
developed by Inditex and third
parties, back up its supply chain
model. All items are shipped back to
Spain where they are then shipped
out to stores around the world.
