Fiege opens new apparel warehouse in China's Lingang
Sep '12
With the opening of another warehouse facility in China, Greven-based contract logistics specialist, Fiege, is underlining its focus on the core markets of Europe and Asia, especially China, and now has a total of twelve sites in the People's Republic of China.

The opening in June 2012 coincided with the start of full operations at the warehouse for two European fashion customers. As an international multi-modal hub, the strategically favourable site in the Lingang free trade zone, situated between Pudong International Airport and the Port of Yangshan, the world's largest container transhipment centre, provides fashion customers in particular with the best possible conditions for the rapid handling of logistics processes.

"The Chinese logistics market's rapid pace of development is impressive. With the opening of another site, we are keeping abreast of this development and strengthening our profile in China," said Jens Fiege, Member of the Board of the Fiege Group, at the opening.

In view of the increasing number of collections of the major clothing manufacturers, and the ever shorter production and logistics cycles from production to point of sale, reliable and rapid logistics is increasingly becoming a competitive advantage in the fashion industry. That is why Fiege provides its fashion customers in China with the Fiege Vendor Management tool and the Fiege Control Tower, a credible solution for the fashion industry which handles logistics processes quickly and reliably.

Fiege ensures the highest level of order administration efficiency via its web-based vendor management solution. Using the Fiege system, customers can place and track orders, enter changes and track finished products throughout the entire chain, from them leaving production to arriving on shop shelves. "As one of our core sectors, we have a great deal of experience in fashion logistics. We use this experience to develop systems which add real value for our customers. That's why we are pleased that the system is being readily accepted by manufacturers," said Hannes Streeck, CEO of Fiege China. More than 60 clothing manufacturers in and around Shanghai are already connected to and using the Fiege system.

Fiege Control Tower subsequently monitors the punctual collection of clothing and accessories from the production site, customs clearance and their consolidation in the Fiege warehouse. In addition to bundling smaller orders into less expensive FCL shipments, in Lingang Fiege also handles quality inspections, order picking and finishing. The warehouse in Lingang will handle an estimated eight million items per year. With storage space of 20,000 square metres, the warehouse also offers growth potential for additional customers.

Due to the excellent location, only a stone's throw away from Pudong International Airport and Yangshan container port, Fiege customers will have direct access to every continent. And for the Chinese market, Shanghai-Lingang is also a central gateway to the rapidly growing retail environment of the most populous country in the world.

In the Far East, the Fiege Group is now represented by twelve sites situated in the following major economic zones: Beijing, Wuxi, Shanghai, Ningbo, Xiamen, Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Taipei.
