For two decades now, the company has been working with the premier fashion brands of the world and specialises in advising on and generating projects that foster merchandise distribution through process automation and cutting-edge technology.
Logisfashion, is launching its first logistics centre in Santiago. The company with Spanish capital specialises in logistics for the fashion and home decor industries (retail and e-commerce) and works with brands like Levi’s, Victoria’s Secret, TOUS, Steve Madden, Salvatore Ferragamo, Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger, amongst others.
With 20 years of experience Logisfashion operates in Mexico, Colombia, Panama, Spain, the USA and China. It stands out from the competition for its use of the latest technology that allows space to be utilised to maximum advantage, fostering more efficient merchandise distribution. This is achieved through process automation and logistics management tailored to the client’s needs. This achieves large economies, provides a better delivery service and finally allows you to focus 100% on your business.
Logisfashion’s arrival in Chile goes hand in hand with a tailor-made logistics project for Casaideas but is open to other brands from the region that would like to take advantage of the multinational’s knowhow.
With the constant increase in online shopping (30% growth in the first quarter, according to the chamber of commerce of Santiago) and the announcement of Amazon’s arrival, in Chile retail and e-commerce are going through important changes.
“The increase in online sales is here to stay. It is not something that can be avoided. But as we have seen in other parts of the world, it also represents an opportunity to improve the performance of businesses in a variety of areas that in the past were not so urgent. And that is exactly what our company does, help other firms to improve in these areas and to focus on their strengths,” explains Juan Manzanedo, CEO of Logisfashion. “There is room for everyone, but a mindset that is open to change and continual improvement is required,” he concludes.
In 2017 Logisfashion turned over nearly $35 million, with 20% growth compared to the previous year. The firm boasts 15 logistics centres with 200,000㎡ of surface where 50 million articles are managed annually. Their range of services include logistics at source, reconditioning of articles and logistics operations at the destination, inverse logistics, e-commerce and consulting.
