Logistics solutions for the fashion industry (apparel)

E-commerce has enabled rapid growth within the fashion industry (apparel) in recent years thanks to permanent product availability and quick delivery. The luxury of trying on clothing at home, coupled with free returns and low incentive pricing due to increased competition, have seen a drastic rise in the demands on internal material flows for both manufacturers and retailers.

Serving multiple sales channels vastly increases the complexity of the logistics processes. Modern customers expect far more than simply low prices. They also expect the best possible service in a timely manner.

Solutions from SSI SCHAEFER:


  • Storage of a broad multiple SKU product range

  • Rapid delivery after receipt of the order

  • Ability to deal with daily and seasonal peaks

  • Optimized returns handling

  • Efficient processing of very small orders

  • Minimize the number of product touches

  • Fast and accurate delivery

SSI SCHAEFER has developed a modular logistics system solution for the fashion industry designed to handle complex requirements. 

SSI SCHAEFER created a comprehensive solution for the Finnish store chain Stockmann. The system is designed to handle a throughput of 55,000 order items with 180,000 individual pieces per day. The shuttle warehouse with 130,500 container spaces for double-deep storage is the heart of the Stockmann system concept.
