Leading fashion logistics services provider is increasing its presence in Asia´s premium fashion and lifestyle sector.
Malaysia, November 17 2011 - Logwin, a leading global provider of logistics services, has opened a dedicated fashion warehouse in Shah Alam in Malaysia as the first dedicated Fashion + Lifestyle logistics operation in Asia. The new facility will provide a full range of services specifically targeted at meeting the needs of customers in the premium fashion and lifestyle products sector.
The warehouse will link with Logwin’s existing operations in Hong Kong, Singapore and Shanghai. Sydney will be the next site to come online as the company expands, with Indonesia, India and more offices in China to join the network. Facilities are also planned for Thailand and Vietnam.
Logwin will offer the full range of logistics services at warehouses across Asia which will range in capacity from 9,000 sqm to 18,000 sqm.
“There is growing demand from our fashion and lifestyle customers for dedicated warehousing because the handling of high fashion and lifestyle products is completely different to the way other goods are handled. The service will include the offering of air and ocean freight, distribution and shop delivery,” said Marc Wijnen, Director Logistics at Logwin´s business segment Air + Ocean.
The opening supports Logwin’s aim of becoming a leader in the fashion logistics industry in Asia. Further to this Logwin also announced recently the partnership with the Malaysian International Fashion Alliance (mifa), the organizer of the Malaysia International Fashion Week (MIF-W) to be held in Kuala Lumpur, November 21-27. Logwin will be present at the MIF-W with an own lounge for buyers to meet designers and to get the chance for talks on fashion logistics.
“Malaysia has enormous potential to become one of the fashion and lifestyle centres for Asia and we saw an opportunity to work alongside mifa to further strengthen our leading position in this dynamic industry sector,” said Marc Wijnen.
