Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 19-9-2014 — /EuropaWire/ — TNT has been awarded a two-year contract to provide international delivery services to the Dutch fashion company Mexx.
The contract sees TNT transporting design samples (which are intended to test the designer’s idea or concept in the chosen fabrication) between Mexx’s suppliers in Asia and the Middle East and its Amsterdam headquarters.
Next to this, TNT transports sales samples from Asia to Mexx’s central distribution centre in Voorschoten, the Netherlands. From there, TNT ensures the next-day delivery of the sales samples to showrooms in Europe for presentation to retailers. The most important destinations are Germany, France, Belgium and the Nordics. TNT uses its European Road Network to carry most of the consignments across Europe.
Reliability, short lead times, the provision of a proven return solution and the choice of time-guaranteed express products influenced Mexx’s decision to select TNT.
Sjoerd Kampinga, Senior Purchase Manager Mexx: “TNT’s guaranteed delivery services and short lead times help Mexx Europe meet fashion seasonal deadlines and expand its competitive position. The control and visibility help us to focus on our core business. We are happy to have engaged a new partner who has confidence in this beautiful company and helps us meet our challenging objectives.”
Mexx is present in 46 countries worldwide, selling through over 5,000 retail and wholesale stores and are owned by a private investment firm called The Gores Group.
Mexx started out in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in 1986 when Rattan Chadha took two brands, Moustache, his men’s brand (M), and Emanuelle, his women’s brand (E), and joined them to create a new one. He sealed the match with two kisses (xx): Mexx. Since then Mexx has been designing fashion and accessories that take inspiration from the energy and buzz of the city. The lines are Mexx Women, Men, Kids & Accessories and they also license the name for fragrance and glasses (sunglasses as well as corrective frames). Today, Mexx is still based in Amsterdam and has a team of over 550 talented people in their HQ plus a further 3,300 around the world.
