Spandex saves five percent on its transport costs in Europe and Australia
An interview with Mr. Ulf Schrader, executive director supply chain at Spandex in Achern (Germany) by Marcel te Lindert.
After being acquired by a Dutch private equity fund, Spandex, an international distributor in the sign-making and specialty graphics industries, decided to re-examine its transport and distribution activities. The company asked Groenewout to identify potential cost-saving opportunities.
Spandex supplies the equipment and materials needed to make any kind of signs or speciality graphics products – whether high-quality art reproductions or metres-high building wraps. “We act as a one-stop shop for this sector. Our product portfolio includes anything from wide-format printers, cutting plotters and design software to materials for printing on,” says Ulf Schrader, executive director supply chain at Spandex.
