The Munich-based logistics specialists are taking over product fulfillment
for the new D2C business division of the family-run medium-sized enterprise.
Munich, July 5, 2021 – everstox, developer and operator of the Logistics-as-a-Service platform of the same name, is pleased to announce a new customer from the textile industry. The family-owned SME Gründl is handling the shipping and warehouse logistics of its newly established Direct-to-Consumer business entirely via the everstox platform and its Europe-wide network of qualified logistics partners.
The well-established family business Gründl – headquartered in Ingolstadt, Bavaria – is a leading European supplier of hand knitting yarns, wool and haberdashery. Since its foundation in the 1920s, the medium-sized company has continued to develop successfully and is now established as a modern top specialist in the textile industry. For its recently launched D2C distribution channel, Gründl was looking for a reliable partner to handle warehousing and fulfillment operations. “Our in-house team has very good, established logistics processes for the B2B sector. However, the challenges of e-commerce fulfillment, which is new to us, are fundamentally different – and quickly take you to your own limits,” recalls Sebastian Müller, Marketing and Sales Manager at Gründl. This is because the end customer business is characterized by individual parcel shipments with many, individual subtleties that are centrally important for a great unpacking experience.
State-of-the-art technology enables an interconnected logistics network
“everstox was able to master these challenges without any problems and enabled us to perfectly set up the distribution logistics of our new D2C division within two weeks,” Müller is pleased to say. “We were immediately convinced because, unlike many other providers we know from previous projects, the Logistics-as-a-Service solution from everstox is structured in a completely transparent way. And the operational implementation also worked smoothly right from the start.”
Today, Gründl benefits above all from easy access to highly qualified, specialized logistics partners from the Europe-wide everstox network. Within the interconnected network, Gründl can easily find the right partners who are precisely tailored to the needs of the medium-sized family business in terms of product storage, order fulfillment and shipping. Another plus point is the everstox Cloud Software: With the powerful software, all distribution logistics operations can be automated, monitored and managed. As a result, the family business not only has all order, fulfillment and warehouse data in real-time available in a clear dashboard, but also can add and edit new stock-keeping-units. But there’s many more features available for Gründl, for example: Tracking and tracing of orders and service level agreements, refilling stock or setting up automatic alerts to prevent delivery bottlenecks at the push of a button.
What’s more, Gründl’s planned expansion of the D2C business into other European countries can also be mapped using the Logistics-as-a-Service platform: Thanks to the everstox solution, Gründl can seamlessly integrate new warehouse locations in order to reduce shipping costs and speed up order delivery with local fulfillment across Europe – without any additional integration effort.
