„The fashion industry is fast-paced, which means that logistics must be correspondingly time- and resource-efficient - from receiving goods, sorting and preparing them ready for sale, to loading the delivery vehicles and departing for the stores."
Maike Wolf, Head of Planning and Service Development at REICHHART
No matter if sales take place in e-commerce, outlets or prestigious retail stores in city centers: in an industry as fast-moving and highly competitive as the fashion industry, top performance is required at all times. That is why the right focus plays a decisive role, meaning that logistics have to run safely in the background so our clients can focus on their core business: creating and producing fashion.
That is why various fashion companies rely on REICHHART Logistik as a reliable partner for logistics services ranging from classic warehousing and transport to value-added services such as preparing their goods ready for sale.
To ensure punctual delivery, REICHHART uses strategically located logistic hubs in southern and central Germany. Incoming goods are sorted and pre-commissioned, prepared ready for sale, loaded, secured and transported to stores or regional warehouses.
REICHHART takes care of various value-added services such as putting clothes and accessories on hangers, labeling or attaching anti-theft devices. Making sure to meet our clients‘ high quality standards at all times we don’t only make sure to align our understanding of quality but also put a lot of effort into regular employee trainings. That is how we make sure to contribute to a perfect shopping experience for our clients customers.
As part of individual transport concepts, REICHHART relies on strategically aligned round trips in order to provide several stores or logistics locations using the optimum amount of vehicles, making the most of each trip and avoid empty runs. This means, clothing, accessories and non-commercial goods are transported to stores, while returns, unsold goods and leftover packagings are collected on the way back. This is how we create efficient tours and sustainable cost savings for our customers.
Making sure to provide a smooth start of service, we work in close contact with our clients during the launch phase. In the further course of our partnership, we proactively and continuously point out resource and cost potentials and constantly work on improving material flows and processes - creating trusting and future-oriented partnerships.
