Logistic department

Our warehouse is divided into three units; The first two units are run from the HQ in Weert and are about 2.000 m2. The third unit is an additional rented space nearby the main warehouse which is about 1.500m2. Van Gennip runs their logistic department thru a WMS system called Realtime Solutions and once a container reaches our warehouse our QC’s & production department starts the process;

Each article is checked randomly by our QC teams on size, quality of fabric, labels and style. After this check the QC gives green light to the logistic managers to start counting and dividing the articles by order. Whenever the WMS system or customer delivery date is due the goods will be dispatched to our customers based on several incoterms depending on the customer's conditions.

All remaining supplies are placed to an individual location for re-orders and can be handpicked via a digital hand scanning systems. All special custom articles are stored separately and placed in our third unit not far from our office. These goods are checked by our special private label branch before shipment.

Design department

Van Gennip currently works with 7 designers. From color card, moodboard to artwork, all designs and styles are made exclusively for VGT brands.

Over 1200 different designs are made by this team and followed up to the final salesman sample stage. Many customers’ requests are included into next season collections; this is a part of the success of Van Gennip. We try to listen to our customers wishes to help increase sales.

By reviewing sales data from past collections and including many new models and fabrics, our design department is a big part of the success of VGT. The better the collection the more turnover our customers will make with our brands.

The 'Dutch' commercial taste for everyday wear has proven to be a success for retailers around the world and an asset for how kids look and feel.
