Beauty and cosmetics logistcs

In the cosmetics sector, we can proudly lay claim to unique industry expertise and look back with pride over 50 years’ experience. The flexibility of our system, our special, careful sorting technology and safe handling combine to make us highly sought-after logistics partners particularly for breakable, high-quality cosmetic goods, which are often packaged in glass.

We combine our reliable basic shipment service with special concepts to enable our customers, for example, with a key-date delivery to stage a nationwide launch of new cosmetics products. To this end, the finished goods, accompanying advertising material, displays and gift articles are collected from different locations, consolidated into one consignment and delivered. This allows our customers to present their products throughout Germany in all the cosmetic shops and cosmetic departments on the same day.

With our subsidiary trans-o-flex Logistik-Service, we also take care of the collection and warehousing of the different products through to customised display management. This entails repairing and cleaning displays and equipping them with the latest products and colours. Subsequently, the finished displays are delivered to their point of destination and installed. A service the cosmetics industry would no longer be without.

Last but not least, it is important for the cosmetics industry to be able to call upon us to transport dangerous goods subject to labelling. With us, this is equally part of ‘one stop shopping’ as is the ability to have everything processed by trans-o-flex from small parcels and poster rolls through to complete pallets. After all, the cosmetics solutions from trans-o-flex are not one-way systems. With our returns management, we arrange organised recall campaigns for our cosmetics customers. Upon request, we deploy refillable containers, return packaging and dispose of it properly.
