The global sourcing and distribution network of LPP is centrally managed and covers operations based on its own infrastructure as well as in cooperation with logistics operators. This network consists of an integrated system of Consolidation Centres, Distribution Centres as well as Fulfilment Centres – each playing and important role in the implementation of logistics processes.
Consolidation centres enable us to optimise the supply process by speeding up the transportation time of our goods and reducing the associated costs. Our consolidation centres are located in the Far East, where most of our collections are produced. The operators of the centres are our logistics partners working under supervision of the central Transport and Forwarding Department in cooperation with LPP offices in Shanghai and Dhaka.
Distribution Centres are a key element of our logistics network, constituting the link between the supply and distribution systems. This is where all shipments from our suppliers arrive. They are then verified and stored to ensure timely and continuous delivery for the entire distribution system, including the brick-and-mortar chain and Fulfilment Centres for online sales. In the distribution centres, our goods are prepared for sale – e.g. sorted according to the orders placed by individual stores, packed, and refreshed. Here, too, RFID clips are encoded.
