Austria’s largest textile enterprise, Palmers Textil, has handed over its warehousing operations to the contract logistics provider Fiege. Around one million items and the décor warehouse plus shop fittings have already been moved to the Fiege logistics centre in Vienna. Before this, Palmers had run its own warehouses in Wiener Neudorf itself.

Fiege freed two entire warehouses of their pallet racks and set up a multi-storey, modern shelving system.

Before this, Palmers had run its own warehouses in Wiener Neudorf itself. “With the warehouse leaving Wiener Neudorf, an era of Palmers Textil at the Wiener Neudorf facility is coming to an end. By partnering with the Fiege Group, we consider Palmers’ logistics to be well prepared for what is expected from a modern commercial enterprise”, says Luca Wieser, executive partner and CTO at Palmers.

Fiege will soon be supplying Palmers’ European online shop clientele from Vienna’s south, in addition to the roughly 300 Palmers branches and sales partners of the tradition-steeped Viennese enterprise – at times even multiple times a week. After eCommerce order processing had been handed over to the Fiege Group in June already, Palmers recently decided to have the fashion logistics provider from Westphalia take charge of its complete logistical process flows. “The obvious advantages from merging supply chain processes that back online and offline operations in fashion create a further step towards making the company even more efficient and flexible”, Wieser adds.

“We are very proud to have such a well-known traditional company place its trust in us and to allow Fiege in Vienna to take care of its logistics. In this context, we will optimise the supply chain lastingly together with the customer”, says Christoph Mangelmans, managing director Fashion and Online Retail at Fiege. Fiege will take over the logistics workforce of Palmers in a transfer of undertakings, which will secure continuity of jobs.

“Many employees are very familiar with Palmers logistics because of their long-standing employment. This knowledge and this experience will not be lost”, says Mangelmans. (SV)
