Nike Supply Chain experts ensure that every year 900 million pieces of footwear, apparel and equipment arrive at the right destination on time. That's no easy task. The complex process involves more than 50 distribution centers, a network of thousands of accounts, and more than 100,000 retail stores around the world. Supply Chain professionals constantly push for ways to make Nike's supply chain faster, more efficient, and more responsive to Nike's always-changing consumer needs. One such way is implementing and maintaining our Nike Logistic System (NLS) at our various warehouses.
