declare Shein representatives
Shein is estimated to be the world's fastest growing platform for shopping for clothes, shoes and accessories. It is known for its low prices and promotions for customers. Shein specializes in fast fashion - that is, their collections are inspired by (some say copy) global fashion trends and sell such clothes at low prices in retail stores, for example.
Shein - distribution center in a good location
Shein's distribution center at GLP Wroclaw V Logistics Centre is located at the intersection of routes facilitating the delivery of products to customers in Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic. The nearby S8 road interchange provides easy access to the A4 and A8 freeways, as well as the S3 and S5 expressways. Employees will benefit from convenient bus and train connections from the center of Wroclaw and surrounding towns.
We are delighted to welcome Shein to Wroclaw. Our building will support the company's operations and its growth and distribution network in the region. This is an important transaction for the e-commerce market in Poland, and another step in GLP's successful long-term cooperation with Shein - a company that already uses our logistics space in the United States, China and Brazil, among others.
