Garment exporters to profit from Logisfashion Spanish hub

Logisfashion, a Spain-based company dealing in garment logistics, has taken up a new project that will enable its European customers, especially Spanish companies, to increase their profits.

The global leader in fashion logistics is setting up a new warehouse where apparel companies can store their shipment-ready goods without paying any duty and value-added tax (VAT).

However, such charges would have to be paid by the country where garments are to be exported. Thus, it would save expenses for exporters towards duty and VAT.

Moreover, apparel companies will be able to distribute their garments worldwide directly from the warehouse through the port of Barcelona.

Logisfashion expects the new service will help it become more competitive compared to other European logistic companies.

Currently, Logisfashion operates from 6 warehouses that are fully equipped for the handling and distribution of textiles and garments. The warehouses are located in Barcelona and Guadalajara (Spain), Chile, México, Shanghai and Shenzhen (China). These six logistic centres comprise over 80,000 square metres of warehouse space and have a total storage capacity of 30 million hanging garments.

In 2011, Logisfashion earned 12 million euros, of which around 3 million euros of revenue was contributed by its subsidiaries in Mexico and China.

In Spain, the company has grown with the addition of major accounts, especially e-commerce.

In Mexico, Logisfashion's revenues increased by 20 percent with the firm bagging accounts of companies such as Nike swimwear in 2011. The company now has major growth plans to increase its space to 10,000 sq m and it expects over 30 percent growth in Mexico in 2012.

In Chile, too, the company expects a significant growth this year.

Recently, Logisfashion has partnered with a local company in Brazil to provide logistics services to major fashion brands in the country. It is also setting up a warehouse of 10,000 sq m in the vicinity of Sao Paulo.
