Inditex has long interested the logistics community – especially those in the air freight business. Now Fortune magazine has done a thorough and exclusive profile of the secretive man behind the brands, Amancio Ortega, the third richest man in the world. Said to have logistics as its “essence”, the company, which opens a new Zara store every day, has a 24-hour turnaround deadline for Europe, the Middle East and much of the US, while it has a 48-hour deadline for Asia and Latin America. Fascinating reading.
