Logwin operates the largest European fashion logistics network and delivers more than 300 million hanging garments each year. The AirTextainer has been in worldwide use for decades and modified over the last 10 years to reflect current industry standards.
The multimodal hanging garment container is optimized for airfreight, ocean, road and rail transport ensuring textiles move quickly and safely from the place of production to the point of sale. As a result the garments arrive into store in pristine condition. The need for pressing, steaming and waste disposal is eliminated, reducing total logistics costs and lead times.
“The vast experience in fashion logistics that Logwin acquired over many years is a strong competitive advantage. Our strategic focus is rolling out this expertise in Australia;” said Wolfgang Laube, Managing Director Region South East Asia at Logwin’s business segment Air + Ocean.
“I am thrilled to offer the Australian textile industry a solution that can make a substantial difference to their operational efficiencies. The resulting cost savings across the supply chain are expected to be significant. We look forward to collaborating with fashion brands in our region to develop customer specific solutions.” said Marina Condic, National Manager Fashion and Lifestyle with Logwin in Australia.
Logwin is focusing on the Australia market as demand is growing for both international and Australian brands which are manufactured in Asia. Logwin is now leveraging its experience in the global marketplace to develop its business in Australia as well as southern Africa and Latin America.
“Recent AirTextainer trials in the Australian market suggest that customer savings between 10 and 40 per cent are achievable. These results prove that Logwin’s fashion expertise and extensive international network present significant commercial opportunities to our customers.” she added.
