ABSTRACT
The article focuses on direct global sourcing by U.S. retailers. It says that there is an increasing number of shipments that are going to retailers that have ordered them directly from the manufacturers, rather than going through an import or export company. It mentions that many retailers and distributors travel to Asia for seasonal merchandise and import them back to the U.S. in full container loads that allows the products to be sold at aggressive price points.
