Services for optimum supply chains

It’s hard to overestimate the complexity of supply chains. Or, in other words, there is potential to make existing processes more effective and seamless across the board. And our SCM solutions are designed to do just that – with end-to-end solutions that are cost-optimised, lead-time-optimised or both. The choice is yours.

Warehousing Solutions

We offer a wealth of value-added services to improve the efficiency of your warehouse logistics. With our automated warehouse process chain. We reduce not only stock levels, but also warehousing and order-picking costs.

Consolidation Concepts

Successful consolidation saves you money, which is why we are happy to look for quicker or better-value alternatives on your behalf. To do so, we will either consolidate at regional level (buyer consolidation), inter-regional level or international level.

China Retail

Restructuring goods flows in Asia is our speciality. To name just one example, we deliver directly to your customers in Asia, meaning you cut out the cost of time-consuming reimportation.

Quality Control

We inspect the quality of goods while they’re still in the country of production – but, of course, using German standards. Whether laboratory inspections, product inspections or quality control, we will check anything you ask us to.

Unit Cost Pricing

When determining costs of products, logistics costs are generally regarded as volatile. With our unit cost pricing system, you can protect your contribution margin more effectively. This removes the need for you to laboriously inspect invoices.

Garments on Hanger

We know a lot about clothes – and can therefore offer you a range of sophisticated additional services. Not only is high-quality fashion, for example, transported on clothes hangers, but we also offer numerous added-value services: packing, repacking, order picking at article level, labelling, scanning and much more.
