The case histories of the eBIZ pilots

Successful e-Business networks are already operating in both the upstream and downstream supply chain in both sectors. Although most of these networks are small, the users are already seeing the benefits of exchanging data electronically with their partners.

The examples that follow are taken from both the Textile/Clothing and Footwear sectors and cover several processes in the supply chain from component manufacture through to retail. Many of these collaborations, but not all of them, started as pilots running in the eBIZ-TCF project
