Customized solutions for successful logistics handling in the fashion industry

The ongoing shift in consumer behavior towards e-commerce is leading to smaller order sizes, shorter delivery and throughput times, and complex returns processing. Added to this, growth rate forecasts are now levelling out, there is a shortage of skilled labor, and suitable premises are often difficult to find. Together, these factors are driving a need for more automation and intelligent IT solutions.


Logistics handling and the related space requirements are influenced by a range of factors: a wide variety of product groups, many different business models and omni-channel distribution.

Our industry-specific services:

  • ​​​​​​Assessing the logistics network required to fulfil sales plans, individual product lines and sales channels
  • Developing and optimizing omni-channel structures
  • Strategic consideration of the IT structure and processes
  • Development of dashboards to control sales channels
  • Technology screening / development of automation strategies
  • Planning, tendering and implementing specific individual projects
