The logistics service provider Logwin and Deutsche Textil Logistik (DTL) with its owners Meyer & Meyer and Barth + Co. have concluded a long-term framework agreement concerning cooperation in the German transport network with immediate effect.
The cooperation is the response by DTL and Logwin to developments in the volumes of hanging garments transported, which have been falling for several years. Bundling volumes will provide customers with full geographical coverage with optimised elapse times, overall as well as especially in regions with poor infrastructure. Both parties will continue to operate independently in the markets that are relevant for them. Logwin and DTL will thus continue to maintain and develop their own customer relationships.
Through to the end of 2013, DTL will gradually increase the volumes of hanging and flat-packed garments, lifestyle products and fashion-related goods it feeds into Logwin’s network. The services will cover collecting, transhipping, long-distance transport and final distribution of all groups of goods. Logwin will create the logistic infrastructure and IT conditions required for the partnership in close consultation with DTL and will expand its German retail network accordingly.
“The collaboration between DTL and Logwin will ensure efficient and comprehensive distribution even of hanging garments over the long term,” explain the managing directors of DTL, Peter Barth and Rolf Meyer. “This cooperation will significantly consolidate the network of locations for the geographically comprehensive distribution of fashion and lifestyle products and systematically extend our previous retail network,” adds Berndt-Michael Winter, CEO of Logwin AG. Both partners are certain: “Our customers will welcome this development aimed at maintaining an efficient transport network.”
With 20 billion dollar+ logistics companies amongst the 80+ speakers at the 3PL Summit and Chief Supply Chain Officer Forum, eft is pleased to release the timed agenda for the event.
