Freight Solutions for Textiles,
Clothing and Footwear

For over three decades the team at DEAN World Cargo have assisted many clients with their TCF supply chain requirements. We are very familiar with the TCF retail and wholesale markets because we continue to partner with some of the biggest speciality retailers and wholesalers in Australia and New Zealand.

Our clients require fast results, which we consistently provide by consolidating various suppliers’ cargo consignments via sea and air services.

As clients have grown and required more sophisticated solutions, we have provided a range of origin services such as scan pack and store-ready packaging. This direct to store model streamlines efficiency and slashes freight costs.

We also offer a range of e-fulfilment options in Australia and offshore as well as 3PL services for those who need local distribution.

In short, we offer holistic global supply chain solutions.

Fashion Case Study
For a well-known Australian Retailer with over 159 store locations, DEAN World Cargo has successfully reduced its delivery lead time and significantly reduced costs. The project which involved a combination of origin consolidation and retail pick and pack direct to store program has been successful in achieving a large overall reduction in operating costs for this customer.

We have also provided PO management, vendor management, FCL, LCL and air management and an across-the-board B2B retail store solution for this client.

Originally based in the DEAN Tigers Shanghai facility, operations for this customer have recently expanded to Xiamen.

DEAN Tigers is proud of its long relationship with this customer. The retailer commends the performance of DEAN Tigers and the consistent hands-on approach which is invaluable compared to other logistics providers in the market.

Footwear Case Study
We have serviced this global footwear client—one of the world’s major sports footwear manufacturers—and its well-recognised brand, which originated in America over a hundred years ago.

In addition to freight forwarding, DEAN World Cargo has recently added to its core activities a scan count (audit) of supplier carton contents for the apparel division of this brand. We have been coordinating FOB orders in Hong Kong and China and more recently Singapore. This requires a hands-on service and a great deal of diligence in coordinating their orders for a large Australia-wide retailer.

DEAN Tigers has always maintained a complex schedule for this client tailored to their requirements and containing a set of KPIs which are regularly maintained with a high level of service.

Retailer Case Study
For a top retailer with 160 stores nationally and a wide range of apparel and footwear for both men and women, DEAN Tigers provides a full supply chain retail solution including pick and pack to store level, PO management, vendor management, comprehensive reporting and freight forwarding (air and sea).

For a price differentiated retailer, DEAN Tigers was able to produce cost savings and reduce delivery lead times, all of which have been beneficial for this large retailer.
