Munich-based multi-channel retailer HSE24 has renewed its contract with DHL.
DHL will become HSE24’s sole logistics partner in mid-2013 and also take over providing warehousing for products that were outsourced to a competitor in 2010.
DHL will expand its existing logistics centre in Greven by October 2013, creating a central warehouse from which the entire goods management and logistics chains will be operated with shipments being fed directly into the adjacent DHL parcel centre via a conveyer bridge.
The space, which currently includes 23,000 sqm of warehouse space and handling areas as well as a high-bay pallet racking system for 16,000 pallets, will more than double in size after the renovation and expansion work. Once construction is complete, the Greven location will be able to process about 84,000 orders a day and will include space to store more than 250,000 garments on hangers.
Koen Verbrugge, head of service and operations at HSE24, said: “Our priority is delivering to our customers quickly and dependably. It requires efficient order processing as well as provisions for the specific needs of our type of business. DHL’s logistics concept combines the best of automated and manual logistics processes to create the ideal solution.”
