Retail and Fashion Case Study:
Sun Logistics supports the Hong Kong retail and fashion industry with a robust cross-border solution that capitalizes on its storage facilities in both Yantian Integrated Free Trade Zone and Hong Kong.
About the Client:
The client is an internationally recognized retailer of food, clothing, household goods, and furniture with over 30,000 active SKU’s.
With 25 retail outlets in Hong Kong, the client was faced with the following logistics and supply chain difficulties:
- Expensive storage costs in Hong Kong.
- Capability to meet seasonal or increases in demand for value added services such as picking, packing, and labeling with short lead times.
- Large number of active SKU’s with fluctuating volumes and seasonality of products
- Special storage and handling requirements including temperature and humidity control
- Oversized/bulky products
To address the client’s concerns, Sun Logistics implemented its cross-border model to support the client’s supply chain. As space is limited Hong Kong, Sun Logistics operates its client’s day to day distribution activities from its Hong Kong facility, while replenishing stock volumes with daily short haul deliveries from Sun Logistics’ Yantian facility in Shenzhen. Additionally, as both facilities offer valued added services, seasonal or increased demand can be easily met with cooperation from the two Sun Logistics’ facilities.
By utilizing a cross border model, Sun Logistics is able to provide the client with an end to end solution, where the client not only saves on storage costs but also is able to meet unexpected or seasonal demand for value added services. Our cross border model and facilities allows are client to be confident and remain flexible when it comes to meeting the demands of its supply chain.
