In this scenario, the Fabric Producers agree to send fabrics and accessories ordered by the Apparel Producer to a Logistics Company or directly to the Apparel Subcontractor specified by the Apparel Producer.
The Apparel Producer send a Despatch Request of the "kit" to the Fabric Producer o to the Logistics company so that it can make the "groupage (fabric, buttons, fastners…) and send it to the specified Subcontractor.
At this point, the Logistics company (or the Fabric Producer acting as) send the Despatch Advise to the Apparel Producer to confirm the shipping; the same document is sent to the Subcontractor to anticipate the information about the material it will receive.
This document is relative to the Despatch Advise of the "kit" and can concern one Subcontractor only.
The basic principles are:
- one line item must correspond to one "kit" and one Subcontractor
- every kit is made of one or more fabrics of which the single pieces can be identified, plus several accessories
- as for the roles: the Apparel Producer is "buyer", the Logistics company is "supplier" and the Subcontractor is "third party"
