Reacting to news of the award Mr Friedhelm Schmitter, Managing Director of Thiel FashionLifestyle said:
"We are exceedingly happy and grateful for having received the award. We see this prize as an endorsement for our development work in offering customised logistics solutions to diverse customer groups. This starts with logistics schemes for raw material, in which we transport cloths and raw material from the country of production straight to processing and from there offer a modular range of individual store supply solutions, suiting the need of each customer. One example is our Speed Module, which allows daily supply of the POS in the early morning in order to render expensive storage space downtown unnecessary. Another example is the High End Solution which connects the Speed Module with Shelf Services at the POS and that way frees the shop assistants from extra work."
