As the slogan, so the digital shopping world: The World in YOUR Hands! Since 1 December, customers in Germany and Austria have the comprehensive Schleich world with animals, elephants, dragons, and co. in their own hands via mouse-click. The Swabian toy manufacturer, whose figures are sold in more than 50 countries, has placed its entire online distribution in the hands of Hellmann eCommerce. The Osnabruecker company proved itself in a pitch for the implementation of the Magento-based online shop and the entire fulfilment processing with its complete solution.
As the digital era prompts a shift towards online retail, Andy Sulston, Director of Contract Logistics & Consulting at Hellmann Worldwide Logistics – one of the world’s largest privately owned logistics networks – examines the operational impact on the UK’s logistics sector.
Silvian Heach, the Italian fashion label from ARAV Fashion SpA, has chosen Hellmann eCommerce, the international full service expert, and Venda, one of the world’s leading innovators and providers of digital commerce solutions, to launch its first U.S. ecommerce site. The contract signing for an end-to-end solution for the U.S. market took place at the end of 2013. The project is planned to go live in the first quarter of 2014.
Effective January 1st, 2013, the logistics company Hellmann Worldwide Logistics took over the freight forwarding company Kunze, with all of its subsidiaries in Bielefeld, Dresden and Karlsruhe (Karlsdorf), and the all commercial properties.
