Grevenmacher (Luxembourg) – The global logistics service provider Logwin has acquired a new customer. Logwin will now be supplying all 37 stores of Ernsting’s family in Austria with products for the entire family, from toys through to decorative articles.
The articles for Ernsting’s family, including baby clothing, children’s shoes, women’s jeans and men’s jackets, are stored in Coswig, around 100 kilometres south-east of Berlin. Logwin takes delivery of the pre-picked goods at the warehouse and transports them to its locations in Vienna and Bergheim near Salzburg. Logwin supplies stores in the west of Austria from Bergheim, while shops in the east of the country receive goods via Vienna.
Expertise in stores logistics
Currently Logwin transports around 25,000 boxes for Ernsting’s family from Coswig to Austria each year. This volume will increase in future since Ernsting’s family is on course for expansion. The service package also includes shop-to-shop deliveries, where the logistics specialist transports for example cuddly teddy bears from Salzburg to Vienna or from Innsbruck to Graz as and when required. “For us it is important that store deliveries are made punctually, reliably and accurately,” explains Holger Henning, Manager Distribution Centre at Ernsting’s family. “This is particularly true for our promotional and catalogue goods, which must be available at all times. Logwin can meet all these requirements thanks to its many years of experience in retail logistics.” Logwin also organises returns processing for Ernsting’s family. Drivers collect return consignments when they make their store deliveries and transport them back to the warehouse in Coswig.
Ernsting’s family uses the “BOOK” web-based platform for dispatch processing. Besides handling basic order entry, the software also generates consignment numbers and corresponding barcode labels and transfer lists automatically. The data are then transferred to Logwin’s internal forwarding system. Ernsting’s family staff can follow consignments seamlessly from handover to delivery in Logwin’s tracking & tracing system.
Expansion in Austria
Ernsting’s family has big plans for expansion in Austria. The company opened its first 37 shops there over the last 18 months. 23 additional stores are planned to follow in 2012. “We are delighted that we have been able to accompany the enormous growth of Ernsting’s family in Austria from the very beginning”, says Ernst Harringer, Location Manager for Logwin in Bergheim.
