GEODIS and Shoes For Crews extend partnership
The slip-resistant shoe company Shoes For Crews Europe (SFCE) has awarded GEODIS Netherlands a third multi-year contract, reinforcing the partnership that the two companies have built since 2012. GEODIS continues to take care of the entire supply chain process, from the incoming order to the delivery to the end customer across Europe.
Originally founded in 1984 in the United States, the European Division of SFCE was established in Shannon, Ireland in 2001, designing and producing one of the largest and most comprehensive slip-resistant shoe styles in the world. In 2012 SFCE moved its Distribution Centre to Venlo in Holland to meet the needs of its fast-growing European business.
In the last seven years SFCE has seen strong annual double-digit growth with volumes increasing by over 50% since 2015. GEODIS supports SFCE by offering a turn-key solution combining a variety of services from forwarding and warehousing to road transport. The investments made in process improvement and system optimization have led to a smooth-running operation. In the coming months a new Track & Trace tool will be implemented, giving SFCE access to real time information.
“Long-term relationships are what we aim for within GEODIS and we are therefore proud that SFCE has once again chosen us as its logistics partner” - says Mark van den Assem, Managing Director GEODIS Netherlands. “Innovation and continuous improvement will remain the focus of our collaboration in the coming years”.
