Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, August 17, 2012 - Logwin, a leading global provider of air and ocean freight and logistics services, has been praised by Khoon Hooi, a multiple award winning Malaysian fashion designer, for its seamless service in delivering his luxury fashion pieces to the Tranoi Trade Fair, held during Paris Fashion Week.
Khoon Hooi, collected the Logwin Industrial Excellence Award at the Malaysia International Fashion Week (MIFW) last year. Logwin’s award identified Khoon Hooi as a new emerging talent in the Malaysian fashion industry. As part of the award Logwin sponsored the designer’s shipment to two of the world’s leading fashion capitals, the first shipment was of his latest collection from Malaysia to Paris and back.
“The Logwin staff coordinated the shipment with high professionalism. The service was very efficient in terms of documentation, handling and arranging the shipment. We really appreciate Logwin’s sponsorship,” said Khoon Hooi, owner and Creative Director Clothier Creation Marketing Sdn Bhd.
“Logistics is a critical element in the luxury fashion and lifestyle products sector and it is an area that many designers do not know much about. Our products have a short shelf life and we export them only in a low volume. They must be packaged, handled, stored, transported and delivered in optimum condition and to very tight deadlines,” he added.
Logwin was a major sponsor of Malaysia International Fashion Week and attracted a great deal of interest from local and international designers and fashion companies. Many young designers are looking to build their presence in European fashion markets and during MIFW met Logwin executives to discuss how they can leverage the company’s network and services.
In 2011 Logwin launched its premium fashion logistics product called ‘red carpet logistics’ in Kuala Lumpur as the first step in an Asia-wide roll out. In 2012 the company has opened a new fashion logistics warehouse in Beijing, with more planned in the region in the future.
The service combines the transport of high-end fashion and lifestyle labels to, from and within Asia, with dedicated warehouse facilities.
