The FIEGE Group has taken over World Fashion Logistics (WFL) based in Hong Kong to expand its contract logistics operations in Asia. The family business based in Greven in Westphalia now owns 100 per cent of the shares in WFL. WFL operates a logistics site in Shanghai and provides logistical services in China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia as well as Turkey for eCommerce, retail, fashion and luxury brands. In terms of the acquisition, FIEGE was advised under the lead management of Theiselmann in the legal process, involving local law firms in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney and Istanbul, including the coordination of the legal due diligence in five jurisdictions.

The FIEGE Group is a leading European logistics company that specialises in efficient supply chain solutions. With a workforce of more than 20,000 employees at more than 150 sites, FIEGE operates on an international scale from core markets in Europe, to India and China. FIEGE is seen as a pioneer of contract logistics and since its formation almost 150 years ago has evolved from a transport company to a globally-operating full-service logistics provider offering many more services, particularly in the fields of market place management and e-commerce. The tradition-conscious organisation never ceases to reinvent itself in order to remain state of the art in times of digitisation and automation.
