'The Economic Report' features Belspeed in an episode about Pioneers in Fashion Logistics as part of the show's Doing Business in a Global Economy series.
In today's challenging global economy, companies look for international expansion and need safe and timely deliveries of their products. This demand is especially critical in the fashion industry, where designers and their brands must react promptly to seasonal and volatile marketing climates. With American and international companies wanting to expand into Europe and the emerging markets of Russia, China and the Middle East, fashion logistics has become an increasingly important niche market.
Each year, millions and millions of garments and accessories must be transported, stored and delivered as needed. One of the most prominent European companies in the field is Belspeed, which is based in Belgium. It was founded in 1983 as a fashion transportation company by two entrepreneurs, Jean Brandt and Charles Lambert; yet it was in 2000 that the company began to specialize in full service fashion logistics. Since then, Belspeed has become a cornerstone in the business model that introduces and delivers American and international brands into European and emerging markets.
In the past few years, the company has achieved award-winning success, which Lambert credits to the addition of Chief Executive Gary Dahan, who introduced many American brands to Europe, reinforced Belspeed's infrastructure for growth, empowered the management team, welcomed technological advances, increased operations and warehouse space. Due to the dynamic owners, managers and efficient staff serving high level clients, the company grew by over 20% each year from 2006 through 2008.
The five-minute segment, which will educate viewers on fashion logistics, was filmed at the company's warehouses in Belgium.
'The Economic Report' segment begins airing March 30, 2009 on CNN in the Boston area. For additional cities, times, dates and for more information, please visit: http://www.belspeed.eu
