Hong Kong, December 23 2011 - Logwin is launching red carpet logistics Asia-wide following the successful „roll out‟ of its premium fashion logistics product in Malaysia.
The next phase of red carpet logistics expansion in Asia will see its service offering reaching fashion brands in Singapore, Hong Kong and Mainland China as well as Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand and Australia.
“The first facilities to come on-line will be Hong Kong, Singapore and Shanghai, then we will phase in the other fashion warehouses during the next year or so,” said Marc Wijnen, Director Logistics of Logwin‟s business segment Air + Ocean.
The service will combine the transport of high-end fashion and lifestyle labels to, from and within Asia, with dedicated warehouse facilities.
“The response from the fashion industry following our launch in Malaysia has exceeded all expectations, we have been inundated with enquiries from around the region following Malaysia International Fashion Week,” said Wijnen.
“We have attracted interest from buyers and designers who visited the Logwin Lounge at mifw. We are now talking to the Headoffices of leading brands as we are a considered part of the fashion industry, not just a supplier of logistics services,” added Wijnen.
Red carpet logistics will primarily focus on premium brand labels going into Asia, and on the Asian premium brands going to Europe, Australia and the US.
Logwin is forecasting a dramatic increase in demand for warehousing and transport services within the emerging markets in Asia particularly for premium European and US fashion and lifestyle products. Also there are more Asian premium brands expanding their sales outside of Asia in Europe, North America and the Middle East.
