We will provide all logistics activities in Europe-Middle East related to goods movements. These range from inbound road transport, container (de-)consolidation, outbound transport to all retail stores, customs administration and invoice audit. The main shipping location is near Chartres in France, where Elizabeth Arden has its EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) distribution centre.
Control tower setup
A 3,5PL control tower operation will be set up in France and is a variant on the 4PL concept. With Elizabeth Arden we will be their logistics department making use of both the DSV network and 3rd party services. In the model we have created with Elizabeth Arden a substantial part of the transport is executed by DSV to provide Elizabeth Arden with a single European partner.
DSV demonstrated a thorough understanding of our requirements and an approach in line with our strategy. It has been a very pleasant experience to work with their knowledgeable team
