We are constantly optimising our distribution processes to ensure on-time, transparent and safe delivery. Transparency is the top priority for our customers – thanks to our supply chain management tool, you can keep an eye on your textile deliveries 24/7.

Completely according to your specifications: We offer professional transport logistics tailored to your requirements. For textile logistics, LGI has various systems for folded and hanging garments, quality controls and numerous safety measures. In combination with our international transport and logistics network as well as reliable connections, we ensure that your textile products arrive intact and on time.

In our global logistics centres, we organise the handling of your textiles and prepare them for further transport. With our Autostore and other sophisticated technologies, we can guarantee optimal storage capacities, security as well as speed and flexibility.

When it comes to order picking, LGI relies on the synergy of efficient warehouse software solutions and optimal deployment of our competent employees. Thanks to our Pick & Pack process, we can also meet short-term delivery times and speed up the throughput process in the warehouse.

Tailored to the requirements of the textile industry, LGI has a wide range of solutions and services in value-added services such as goods labelling, preparation of textile products, quality controls and returns management.


Goods processing for the textile industry

With our globally networked transport logistics and contract logistics locations, we offer you customised value-added service packages. Leave the repair service, labelling, tunnel finishing and steam ironing of your fashion products to our qualified personnel. We make your goods look perfect and get them ready for sale.

More than 200,000 textile products pass through our preparation department every year. We treat the textiles with modern equipment such as tunnel and form finishers, but we also iron by hand, if necessary. In textile logistics, we have the right solution for every quality level and every type of fabric. Our multi-chamber tunnel finisher ensures high-quality, gentle treatment of various textiles – from cotton and all other natural fibres to synthetic fibres and leather. Natural fibres are efficiently pre-treated: the integrated Cotton Care unit moistens the fabric to achieve the best finishing results. Our form finishers are available for particularly gentle and high-quality finishing of garments such as blouses, jackets and coats. Hand ironing is perfect for delicate fabrics as well as hard-to-reach areas, as they can be finished individually according to specific requirements. Moreover, washing and cleaning work for textiles rounds off the range of services in textile logistics.

At the customer’s request, our seamstresses can carry out repairs and adjustments to your fashion apparel. For example, this includes cutting hanging threads, repairing seams and hems, attaching buttons and repairing minor defects. You can rely on LGI for professional and fast repairs as well as attentive treatment. In addition to our textiles expertise, you can also benefit from our cross-sector supply chain expertise in healthcare logistics, industrial logistics, automotive logistics, beauty & lifestyle logistics and logistics for electronic products.


Returns management in the fashion industry

A high returned goods rate is commonplace in the fashion industry, especially in e-commerce. In order to minimise the processing costs of returns, the goods must be quickly resold. To facilitate this process, we develop your customised, sustainable and cost-optimised returns concept based on your requirements.

In returns management, our services in the textile industry include checking for completeness and resale value, as well as value-added services, logistics and transport. Our customer service takes care of your returned goods carefully and quickly. First, the returned goods are checked. Then the textile products are classified into categories A, B and C depending on the quality of the goods and their suitability for reuse. The goods are then carefully sorted according to the customer’s specifications, processed and repackaged and, before the resalable textile products are shipped out, any defects are rectified.

LGI relies on extensive standardisation of processes and the latest technologies in the warehouse for the returns process. This guarantees that the goods are returned to the distribution channel as expeditiously as possible and are thus quickly available again. Quality awareness in the handling of your textile products as well as our service promise in textile logistics are our top priority.
