Zentrada starts the Business Year with a Spring Catalogue

March 21, 2017

In time for the spring season in commerce, the online buyer network zentrada ( releases its current accumulative catalogue with the latest products, novelties, and offers for the upcoming season.

1.000 top sellers, trend products and promotion ideas for spring and summer represent more than 400.000 products that are listed on the zentrada wholesale marketplaces, and are available to be ordered directly from the suppliers through TradeSafe. The current catalogue is published in eight languages and reaches independent retailers in more than 15 countries. Zentrada’s concept to success for the retailers is easy. “Benefit from customer proximity and frequency to make more revenue and profit with constantly changing assortment ideas, promotion offers, season articles, and promotion products. This attracts buyers and creates customer loyalty”, explains Ingo Schloo, zentrada CEO and co-founder. “The creativity and possibilities of zentrada, as the leading European sourcing platform for resellers, provides especially smaller independent retailers with many business opportunities for the future.”

The sees the current implementation of zentrada.Distribution as one important building block for the future.

Responding to the wishes of big European manufacturers and importers of consumer goods, zentrada doesn’t only take on the online marketing to the target audience of smaller independent resellers, but also the European-wide delivery of small orders and their invoicing and payment. 

„We bundle the online orders from our members to automatically generated release orders from the suppliers and deliver the orders through our new exchange logistic center in Würzburg.”

The integrated processes on the zentrada-marketplaces, the TradeSafe order processing, and the innovative logistic management make the system really time and cost efficient. This enables big suppliers to also serve small retailers Europe-wide.

“Thereby, our members have access to high quality and price attractive assortments and trademarks, without high minimum order values”, says zentrada’s CEO Ingo Schloo. The delivery costs are generally low due to zentrada´s existing partnership with UPS for shipment throughout Europe. But, retailers have to expect additional 2-3 days in the delivery time.

Already at the beginning, zentrada.Distribution offers more than 30.000 products, representing many European suppliers and Trademarks, for example CMP, Polyflame, Viva, Filmer, Herding, Cartal, Kiddystores, Royal Textil or Widmann. The offering will be increased significantly throughout the next months.

The catalogue is also available online.
