Greenway Logistics

UKFT has partnered with Greenway Logistics, based in the Netherlands, to provide members with global logistics solutions. The advice and mediation offered by Greenway is free of charge for UKFT members.

Since its inception, the company has supported dozens of UKFT members in logistics and supply chain operations, including assistance with setup after the UK has left the European Union. Additionally, Greenway Logistics has provided UKFT members with advice on sustainability in logistics, consolidation of sea freight, export solutions and outsourcing logistics.

Many fashion companies from outside Europe choose The Netherlands as their point of entry for establishing their European business and logistics. The Netherlands is particularly well-suited for the fashion, textile and lifestyle industry. It serves as the logistics gateway to Europe (and the rest of the World) with Rotterdam Port and Amsterdam-Schiphol Airport being major hubs, offering fast connections throughout Europe, numerous fiscal advantages (co-contractor VAT transfer) and a genuine entrepreneurial culture.

Greenway Logistics was founded in 2008 and has offices in several EU countries, as well as in China. The firm already supports 15 other fashion and textile trade associations around the world, helping member companies develop their logistics in the most efficient and cost-effective way.

Services and benefits offered to UKFT members include:

  1. Continuation and further development of Brexit related advice and solutions.
  2. Consolidation of sea freight, with ‘buying at source’ and ‘buffering at source’ as new elements.
  3. CO₂ monitoring of logistics, with formal certification and focus on improving performance.
  4. Gateway-O initiative, aimed at helping SME and larger brands with a low barrier, low cost, entry to the Chinese market through multibrand WeChat stores and others.

Greenway plans to open a UK office to effectively serve UK fashion and textile brands. Many other concepts and products that are currently available in other Greenway countries will soon be made available in the UK. UKFT and Greenway are looking forward to working with members to find new solutions in a constantly changing global market.
