Hans Boodt Mannequins has turned traditional display window figures into a high art form all of its own. Their custom-made mannequins are now high in demand among some of the biggest names in the fashion world, from Viktor & Rolf to Ralph Lauren. The company’s design studio in the Netherlands resembles a fashion designer’s atelier. Here, a team of designers and IT wizards use 3D printing technologies to design and develop tailor-made mannequins for their clients.
“What Shypple offers is always clear and user-friendly,”
As a producer that sells and ships its products directly to customers, Hans Boodt Mannequins needed a solution that would give them complete control over their shipments. In the past, when a container was ready for shipping, it was handed over to a third-party shipping partner. Tracking and tracing the shipments is a top priority, but Hans Boodt Mannequins says it was often difficult to maintain full transparency in the shipping process before they started working with Shypple.
Hans Boodt Mannequins works closely with a trusted local forwarder in China because they needs to ensure full support and a smooth process for their factory there, which is essential to their company’s business. The forwarder helps with customs documents and liaises between Hans Boodt Mannequins and the production site in China. Hans Boodt Mannequins chose Shypple because they wanted to build on their company’s strong relationship with their forwarder while also creating a more automated process for working with them.
As transport professionals with years of experience in the industry, the Hans Boodt Mannequins transport team says to be very impressed with how easy it is to use the Shypple web platform.
They are particularly happy with the notifications and automatic emails they receive from the platform, keeping them fully up to date on shipping dates, ETAs and other important information about incoming containers.
Hans Boodt says Shypple makes it even easier to communicate with their local forwarder. Having a single, centralised chat for each shipment is extremely beneficial, because it ensures full transparency and makes sure everyone is on the same page.
