Like technology, fashion has always been at the forefront of innovation – from early inventions like the textile loom and sewing machine, to the modern-day ascension of e-commerce.
Following a challenging 2020, the fashion industry is now growing at a faster rate than ever, and with it the need for sustainable warehousing facilities with fast and efficient procedures in place to ensure the quickest and most accurate speed to market.
For major fashion retailers, Rhenus Warehousing Solutions Lutterworth has the perfect fit solution, offering bespoke services in warehousing, distribution and order fulfilment to a number of longstanding clients including Marks and Spencer.
In June, the warehousing solutions expert will launch its ‘Always in Fashion’ campaign, which aims to influence networking opportunities with potential fashion retailer clients.
Harry Wheelhouse, European Sector Manager at Rhenus, said: “Rhenus Logistics is performing exceptionally well globally, providing innovative solutions no matter the scale or complexity of customer requirements.
“The UK has a very developed market in terms of fashion comparatively, which means there is great potential for clients to benefit from a wide range of third-party resources to enhance the consumer experience.
“As both an industry leader and a family-owned group of logistics service providers, we pride ourselves on our tailored approach to offering services, which includes the development of innovative solutions and automation, the use of very experienced fashion operatives, and the running of tailored stock control systems.
“The fashion sector can hugely benefit from the speed of chain to market that we offer, as the industry sees a high rate of returned goods of up to 25 per cent, any further improvement we can make really benefits the retailer.
“Fashion is about legacy for us. We have a team of highly experienced colleagues who are fully-equipped to deal with strict requirements, with effective procedures in place to ensure quality is maintained and deadlines are met.”
Harry Wheelhouse believes that the expedited rise of e-commerce has had a profound effect on the logistics industry.
He continued: “The e-commerce sector has taken off in such a way that we are seeing it not only off-set the negative effects from the decline of in-store retail trade, but exceed it.
“Methods of purchasing fashion are always evolving, and a large number of today’s consumers wants to be able to bypass the high street altogether, with the expectation of an option to order a new product online as soon as it becomes available or seen on social media, and have it delivered directly to them the following day.
“As a leading logistics provider, we believe adaptability is key, which is why we make it our priority to keep on top of the ever-evolving requirements of the industry with our bespoke services, speed, innovation and efficiency.”
