A Leader in the Garments Industry Invests in Technology to Remain Innovative.

Carhartt, Inc., is a U.S.based apparel company founded in 1889. Traditionally, Carhartt is known for its work clothes; however, recently Carhartt has diversified to add a much larger audience with clothing for everyday casual wear.

Carhartt manages the demand for its products with a global network of factories. With an increase in demand and a history of outstanding service, Carhartt had plans to keep improving its supply chain and production efficiency.

Carhartt counted with a team of 20 planners manually planning its operations. Planners needed to match weekly demand for specific SKUs to the distribution centers and plants.
