Textile Industry

Dressing the world

The textile industry is a very global industry, which is constantly increasing trade flows all over the world. The growing importance of markets in emerging economies and the development of new uses and product applications makes the need for better access to non-EU markets as well as the intra-European market more important than ever.

In our pursuit to enable smarter trade that is faster, safer, and more sustainable, Unifeeder has developed highly customised solutions for the textile industry that are more transparent, controllable, and cost-efficient and we have been providing transport services to some of the biggest players in the industry. Our solutions tackle the industry's pain points such as safety concerns and environmental issues:

CO2 emissions
Transportation costs
Cargo loss
Volume fluctuations
Lack of truck drivers

CO2 emissions

Make the textile industry greener

The fashion industry is responsible for 10 % of annual global carbon emissions, more than all international flights and maritime shipping combined. The textile industry in general is  also facing backlash in terms of pollution and the use of chemicals in their production, so why not take the green road when possible?
 
Multimodal transport can contribute tremendously to reducing the carbon footprint of European transportation and the chemical industry. Shipping containers by sea provides a greener alternative to conventional, overland transport with significantly smaller CO2 emissions per tonne/kilometre carried (16 g CO2/tonne per km. vs. 22 g for rail and 62 g. for truck).

Transportation costs

Competitive pricing, customised solutions

With a trade market covering the world, transportation prices are very important for the profitability of the textile industry.
Multimodal is a cost-effective alternative to traditional road transport, as a single vessel can transport the equivalent of 700 truckloads. Large-scale operations and efficient utilisation of vessels enable highly competitive prices while allowing for flexible, door-to-door solutions. 
 
For example, going from Norway to Belgium is approximately 25% cheaper by multimodal than truck only.

Cargo loss

Transport your cargo safely on a vessel

6% of commodities stolen in 2019 were consumer products such as clothing, which is a big part of the textile industry's production, but only 1% of all cargo theft happened on a vessel.
 
At sea, your cargo is moved in sealed, steel containers from door-to-door without any handling of the cargo in between. Thereby you lower the risk of contamination and loss of your cargo as you reduce the human touchpoints along the ride. Additionally, our containers can be equipped with high security seals which are stronger and more difficult to tamper with.

Volume fluctuations

Scale your capacity when needed

Due to the size of our vessel fleet, extensive European network and multiple sailings per week, Unifeeder is able to quickly adapt our flows in order to cope with last minute orders, changes or delays by adding or rerouting cargo on an as-needed basis.
 
Whether you need to reduce cargo flow, increase volume or add new dropoff locations, multimodal and Unifeeder have the ability to scale far better than trucks because even the textile industry experiences fluctuations and seasonal changes.
Border closure-01

Lack of drivers

From door-to-door on time

In 2018, more than 50% of European apparel was exported to other countries within the EU making transport across borders crucial. 
 
Unfortunately, delivery times in the European Union are getting longer as the Union is facing a shortage of almost 150,000 truck drivers and there is regulations limiting the number of hours drivers can be on the road. Border closures and  high congestion on the roads are also adding to the problem. 
 
With multimodal transport, Unifeeder finds the best combination of sea, rail and road, circumventing the above mentioned problems and giving you a smart and flexible logistics solution to get your cargo to the destination on time.
