Scan Global Logistics and ECCO expand their partnership
Scan Global Logistics and ECCO expand their partnership with a new agreement covering all inbound volumes to Denmark and Riga from ECCO’s production sites in Asia.
The leading third party logistics provider, Scan Global Logistics and ECCO, who is one of the world’s leading fashion footwear retailers and manufacturers, recently signed an agreement nominating Scan Global Logistics as ECCO’s logistics partner for inbound volumes to Denmark and Riga from Asia.
In 2010, ECCO and Scan Global Logistics signed their first agreement for logistics services covering only a small portion of ECCO’s total logistics spend. Since then the business relationship has evolved and with the latest award, Scan Global Logistics is now one of ECCO’s main logistics service providers. ECCO believes that expanding the partnership will support the company’s growth ambitions over the coming years.
“It is important for us to have trust in our logistics service providers and that trust has been built with Scan Global Logistics over the years of good cooperation,” says Scott William Phillips, Supply Chain Director at ECCO. “Scan Global Logistics has delivered on their promises through excellent service delivery and a true partnership minded approach to create mutually beneficial solutions to our supply chain. Through this nomination we want to recognize Scan Global Logistics for the efforts made to help us create an efficient supply chain over the past years.”
The partnership between the two companies includes multiple geographies and products, i.e. shipping of raw materials and finished shoes to/from Asia Pacific, Europe and North America via ocean freight and airfreight. The main flow being the latest nomination of ocean freight of finished shoes from the production units in Asia to Denmark and Riga.
“We are big enough to achieve the buying power and attention we need from our suppliers and yet small enough to stay agile and flexible in how we serve our customers. I believe these are some of key factors that make our partnership with ECCO a success”, says Kim Fischer, Corporate VP Global Sales, Business Development and Strategic Accounts at Scan Global Logistics. “ECCO is a Global Key Account for us and we look forward to leveraging the expertise we have built in the past, also in the years to come.”
ECCO is a Danish shoe manufacturer and retailer. Apart from fashion footwear, ECCO’s product portfolio also includes bags and accessories. Their products are sold in 90 countries through +2,200 ECCO shops and shop-in-shops, as well as independent retailers and online sales.
