Sportswear wholesaler picks SBS

Sportswear wholesaler Division Six has chosen SBS Worldwide to run a pan-Asian warehousing and distribution operation.

Division Six takes dated, discontinued and overstock merchandise from well-known brands for re-sale and distribution within Asia, as well as Australia and South Africa.

SBS provides bonded and non-bonded facilities throughout Asia, and manages the logistics, factory tax reclaims and export documentation to ensure trouble-free storage, sortation, picking and distribution when the goods are sold.

It designed the operation to ensure that parties involved could benefit from tax incentive schemes.

In countries operating export tax incentive schemes, factories have a limited timeframe in which to reclaim the tax benefit after the date of export, however the goods may not be shipped out of the country within this timeframe after being sold and delivered to Division Six.

To avoid any delay for the exporter in receiving the tax rebate, SBS Worldwide arranges for the goods to be ‘exported’ into bonded logistics facilities around Asia and assists the factory in the rebate application.

The goods are then held securely and ‘exported’ out of the origin country, pending onward distribution to multiple buyers in multiple locations at later dates.

Stephen Schwarz, business development at Division Six, said: “SBS Worldwide’s ability to implement a pan-Asia supply chain operation using warehousing across the region tailored to our exact requirements has been impressive.”
