Kruishoutem, Belgium (PRWEB) June 10, 2008
Belspeed has earned a reputation among the fashion industry's most demanding clients as a full service logistics company with heart and soul. Specialized only in fashion and fashion accessories, the twenty-five year old company has doubled its volume from 2006 to 2007. The growth has been a testament to the hard work and devotion of the principals, management and staff.
Their hands-on approach and personal interest have created a loyal customer base and many industry friends. Clients from Los Angeles, Miami, New York, throughout Europe, Australia and South America have become enamored with the logistics team who place customer service above all else. What they have previously lacked in high-tech solutions, they have compensated for with the passion and dedication of their personnel.
Knowing they needed to update, automate and improve their warehouse management systems, they brought in RedPrairie, a world leading optimization company, to provide solutions, systems and software to facilitate further growth and efficiency.
Philippe Desmedt, Belspeed's General and Commercial Director at Kruishoutem, said, "The web-based inventory tracking program will improve our service because our customers will have greater transparency and accessibility. They will be able to follow their own inventory situation online at their convenience, in real time."
The new RedPrairie software will assist with customs clearance, duties, invoicing, stock management, inventory controls and the entire logistics process. Belspeed's clients are enthusiastic about the technological improvements. Fashion is a fast business requiring rapid turn-around time, getting the goods in the stores quickly. Moving fashion from global warehouses to retailers throughout the western world will be simplified and expedited through implementing these new programs.
Desmedt said, "We've had to turn away some business in the past year because we've needed to enhance our operations. Even so, our business has grown tremendously and we're planning future growth. Bringing in RedPrairie is very exciting for us. We'll be able to expand our client base and better serve our existing loyal customers."
