We are strengthening our growth and our commitment to international expansion
As we await the annual results for 2019, we should acknowledge that it has been an essential year in our company’s expansion and growth. Throughout this year, we have strengthened and consolidated our presence in Spain with 3 new centres and have set our sights beyond our borders, especially in Latin America, where Mexico is shaping up to be the fastest growing market for Logisfashion in the upcoming year.
“For Logisfashion, it is our highest priority to offer flexible and personalised logistics solutions and to assist our customers in their international expansion. We are the logistics partner they need to help them boost their sales, both in the physical store and through e-commerce, in any market where they want to become established”, states Juan Manzanedo, Logisfashion CEO.
Mexico, the logistics locomotive in Latin America
Logisfashion opened its first plant in Mexico in 2007. Currently, the company has a first-rate infrastructure spread out over two distribution centres, in Cuautitlán Izcalli (State of Mexico) with a current operating area measuring 20,000 m² and an average workforce of 230 people. The third centre, which will open in early 2020, measures 12,000 m² and has resulted in 80 new employees being hired.
The new warehouse has the environmental seal and LEED Silver certification.
In Logisfashion's centres in Mexico as well as in other countries, specialised services are made available to customers in stock management, pick and pack, e-commerce, cross dock, tax warehouse and reverse logistics. Its customers include companies in the fashion, accessories, beauty, cosmetics, footwear, jewellery and toys industries, such as Scalpers, Salvatore Ferragamo, Miniso, Pepe Jeans, Grupo AXO; Brook Brothers, Crystal, El Ganso, Carter´s, Tous, Castañer, Hurley and Brooks Brothers among others.
Mexico and its logistical peculiarities
Although some believe that e-commerce is gaining ground om retail worldwide, that is not the case in Latin America. In Mexico specifically, 98% of sales occur in physical stores. This piece of data is backed by the Shopper Experience Observatory (OSE) from in-Store Media and Ipsos which indicate that, in 2018, online transactions in this country accounted for only 1.9% of the total sales made in the retail sector.
“Even though e-commerce is becoming more and more widespread around the world, we cannot lose our focus on the logistics dedicated to the retail sector. The characteristics of the Mexican and Latin American markets, in general, make it necessary. For that reason, we strive to provide the best possible service in that area as well”, says Juan Manzanedo, Logisfashion CEO.
Logisfashion is a multinational logistics operator specialised in the textile, fashion and lifestyle sector, founded in 1996 to offer omnichannel logistics solutions.
As of today, it has a surface area measuring more than 362,000 m2, spread out over 23 logistics centres, which are distributed throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia. The company, which had a turnover of 36,500,000 euros in 2018 and employs more than 1,200 professionals, is expecting to reach 50 million euros in turnover in 2019.
