In 2001, ASICS chose to merge and outsource all their Scandinavian warehouses to Scan Global Logistics. This change resulted in significant savings not only by turning fixed costs into variable costs.
Also, Scan Global Logistics handle ASICS’ bonded warehouse, which means that the goods are not customs cleared until they are sold to the shops. This is an advantage for ASICS in terms of liquidity.
Increased business since 2001
Since the beginning of the cooperation between ASICS and Scan Global Logsitcs in 2001, ASICS’ business in Scandinavia has increased by 400%. The increase is due to the development within the industry as well as to the flexibility in the partnership with Scan Global Logistics.
Over the years, the contract has been renewed several times and the partnership and the way we cooperate has constantly developed and improved. In 2013, we made extensive IT improvements; a completely integrated warehouse management system with full item registration (EAN, size, color etc.) via EDI transfer, updating ASICS WH system with status of PO orders and shipment information and live update of stock order corrections.
