We have extensive experience and specialist knowledge of the cosmetics and cosmeceuticals markets. Our team has all the expertise regarding the careful, skilled handling required to maintain the quality and appearance of your product. We also know how to safeguard deliveries to retailers during holidays and in the case of special requirements. We take care of your logistics by designing your optimum supply chain, including VAT compliance, documentation and reconfigurations.

Cosmetic products or components are temperature sensitive and can easily be damaged or contaminated. We understand that emulsions, ointments, solutions and powders contain active ingredients. For most products to work effectively, their formulas must remain unchanged.

In addition to the actual contents, the packaging itself also has specific requirements. Products can be fragile and liquids, in particular, pose their own challenges. We organize modern order packing and picking systems that combine high output with low error rates and a high storage density.

Share 4PL safeguards the quality of your products, and makes sure they are handled correctly throughout the entire supply chain. This means ensuring some products are consistently refrigerated. And we design special handling and order picking processes for your products as they travel from manufacturer to retailer.

We take care of your full supply chain management, including:

Handling toward retailer

A significant difference in shipping for the cosmetics industry is the preference to frequently ship smaller orders. Share 4PL makes sure you don’t miss any opportunities and offers the solutions you need for a successful roll-out into Europe. To meet the demands of your clients extra handling or repacking is often required (Amazon / Sephora / QVC / Boots / Tesco / Douglas). Share 4PL has the knowledge and the network to create a stable supply chain in a time-critical demanding market.

In addition to careful handling, another critical point is supplying stores and supporting product introductions, especially round special peak times such as Christmas, when the logistics system is overloaded.

Our team of specialists develop and continuously optimize your supply chain network and revenues. To safeguard your customer’s satisfaction, we find the perfect fit for your door-to- door transport. We find integrated warehousing and take care of the complete e-fulfilment for your business. Top-level security and safety measures are put in place to protect your goods and your reputation.

VAT compliance and administration

Optimizing the flow of goods also means optimizing your cashflow. We design the VAT roadmap to maximize revenues for you and your customers. And we take care of all the necessary documentation and administration. Our customized web tools enable you to access the order status 24/7, while focusing on the next steps for your business.

Optimizing your logistics

In our approach, we integrate the design of your logistics route and fiscal operations. The most efficient way may not always be the most effective option. Share 4PL takes into account all of the relevant drivers that will ultimately enable you to be successful for your customer. Our fast and clear reports provide you with all of the management information you need to run your business and to stay in control.

Strategic deployment

We start by designing the optimum supply chain for your specific products and markets. This includes the selection of the right location for your distribution activities. This important decision is key to your success. Depending on the location of your customer base, the main criteria when deciding where to locate your hub should be offset against the generic flows that apply for logistics: physical flow / data flow / document flow and cashflow, including VAT.

We work closely with you and our affiliated VAT and customs lawyers to design or redesign your distribution channels. Taking into account all aspects that make up your value proposition, we work to achieve maximum effectiveness.

Management and optimization

Supply chain management is a continuous process.  This is why we are constantly monitoring all new developments in regulations, product requirements, transport options and short-term notices such as strikes. Our integrated IT system is at the heart of our services, providing all the data necessary for you and for us. This data helps ensure your products are delivered in time and in line with requirements.

Smart webtools for end-to-end visibility

Our in-house designed and tailored web tools manage your entire supply chain, upstream and downstream. They provide you with full transparency in a highly effective way.

Transparant cost structure

Thanks to our management tools, we can deliver better control and greater insight into volumes, demand, timing, etc. enabling you to significantly improve your forecasting.
