Case on site: Customised repacking for Brantano
Since September 2016, Brantano has been a part of FNG, a strongly-growing fashion group in the Benelux countries that has activities throughout Europe. FNG designs and distributes clothing and shoes for women, children and men, which are sold through its own concept stores at top locations in Belgium and the Netherlands, and also via a network of domestic and overseas multi-brand shops.
Since 2016, Brantano has even gone a step further. In 2017 and 2018, all of their 100 shops are/will be undergoing a complete transformation and will be given a new, fresh look! But that takes time, of course. That is why Brantano proceeds in a structured and phased manner. Sixty branches will be given a new look at the start of 2017, and all the Brantano shops will be ready in 2018.
For these refurbishing activities, every shop will be closed for 3 weeks. During this period, Brantano will stock all new product arrivals in its brand new warehouse in Erembodegem. To provide maximum relief to the highly customer-oriented shop personnel, AMAB helps with “unstopping” all shoes.
Unstopping… what are you saying there?
We open the shoeboxes and take out the paper stop(s) from the top and the heel of the shoe. And that is not the end of it! After that, the cleaned shoes are repacked in the original shoebox, with respect for the original packaging. We sort the shoes according to gender (kids/men/women) and stack the shoeboxes according to size (ascending) so that the shop personnel no longer have to do this. Every shoebox has different dimensions, so we have to keep an eye out for this and make sure of stable stacking and proper wrapping on the pallet. As a last step, we provide the finished pallets with the necessary identification labels, and then we position them directly at the dispatch location for the refurbished shop.
We thank Brantano for the trust they have placed in us.
Do you also have a specific project in mind, which requires customised work?
Well, why not have the handling done by us?!
