The fashion and luxury operations specialists, which offer bespoke supply chain solutions for major brands and retailers, have leased 126,000 sq ft of highly specified warehouse space to support their continued global expansion. Focused exclusively on logistics, technology and operational project management for the fashion and luxury industries, the new facility will strengthen the companies' European business, enabling easy access to a UK retail market expected to reach £570.8 billion by 2028[2].

Operating in Asia for more than 20 years, the company works with some of the most prestigious brands and luxury groups in the world. Supported by integrated technology applications and automated systems, it provides a hub for operations in the wider APAC region – enabling increased efficiency and greater speed to market for its customers. The Omlog business first partnered with Goodman in 2007 and currently leases over 900,000 sq ft at Goodman Western Plaza in Hong Kong. It also operates additional facilities in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen.

Close to world-class multimodal infrastructure, the new UK location is well-placed for goods coming into the country. With consumers' increasing delivery expectations and a greater focus from retailers on streamlining the last mile, fast access to Central London is key to serving customers quickly and efficiently.

In addition to retail and e-commerce logistics, The Snatt Omlog Companies provide end-to-end operational support for store openings and renovations, pop-ups, visual merchandising and media activations, as well as a diverse range of specialised value-added services specific to fashion and luxury.

The highly sustainable UK facility benefits from a full rooftop of solar PV to help offset the building's power needs, innovative SolarWall® technology for heating the building's office areas, and rainwater harvesting to reduce water use. With infrastructure for future electric vehicle (EV) fleets, there are also plans to offer EV delivery services into Central London, building on the success of the company's EV delivery solution in Hong Kong.

Luigi Rapetti, CEO of Omlog Asia, said:

"When we looked to expand into this core market, we wanted to collaborate with an organisation we could trust. We're pleased to be building on our longstanding relationship with Goodman, first established in Asia, by opening our first UK facility with them.

"The property's strategic location, combined with its sustainability credentials, was important to us as a business but also to the brands we work with. It will enable us to service customers quickly, reduce delivery miles and in doing so, support our customers in decarbonising their supply chains."

George Glennie, Development Director at Goodman, added:

"Delivering high-quality, sustainable properties that can utilise technology and innovation to increase operational efficiency is key for our customers. We're excited to be working with The Snatt Omlog Companies in the UK and supporting their continued growth in the luxury retail market."
