It’s good to know the main clothing distribution countries for sport wear, clothing, and footwear.
Knowing the locations of these nations is crucial if you are at all involved in such industries, and the possibilities of having contacts in these regions proves very beneficial if you are looking to grow your business network and find new opportunities to take advantage of.
The sheer number of different sectors that are involved in the distribution of clothing for all kinds of clothing is actually rather mind boggling.
At first glance, you might think that you are primarily dealing with textile manufacturers, such as factories that make shoes, shirts, pants, and other garments. However, that is just the source of the clothing in question. The actual distribution of it involves other industries. The clothing that is made is often shipped by truck or rail to ports where they head to distribution countries. The shipping is often done by cargo vessels at sea, but some is done by plane. The ports of east Asia are a very common place for the distribution of clothing, considering how many of them are made in China or surrounding nations.
However, some distribution is also done in North America where many clothes are also made and sold.
Obviously if you are a manufacturer of such clothing goods, you need connections in distribution countries to get your product to the highest-paying markets. On the other hand, you can stand to make money if you are also in the transportation business itself, considering that your trucks, trains, planes, or ships might prove viable means of transporting the goods. Even owners and operators of shipyards and warehouses in distribution cities or ports can work themselves into all the exchanges going on.
Of course at some point retailers and buyers come into play, as they are looking for goods to fill their shelves and racks with so they can sell them to consumers and make money. These players are more likely to be involved in distribution points on the eastern side of the Pacific once the goods have reached the shores of North America. Of course there are also distribution points of lower volume in Western Europe, but also Africa and Latin America, where excess goods that did not sell in North America are often sent for sale.
