MILES, a global sourcing company is among Germany’s leading wholesalers. In 2008, MILES became a subsidiary of the Li & Fung Group, one of the world’s largest trade groups.
MILES, with its continually growing and diverse range of products, is a reliable trade partner for a number of retailers in Germany and internationally. Our customers – from leading retail chains to individual wholesale customers – all place trust in our professional range of services and high-quality products that we offer.
MILES is more than Fashion
Traditionally, our key area of business has always been in textiles. MILES has, however, expanded its range of products and services, establishing itself in a number of additional areas. Our portfolio includes products all the way from outdoor equipment, suitcases and bags, household items, home textiles and furniture to jewellery, shoes and cosmetics. Brands, licensing agreements and themed collections continue to gain significance internationally. This is another area in which MILES has specialised itself. We operate with well-known brands and renowned manufacturers because we know that a good brand earns confidence.
Internationality: The Advantages of Networked Business
MILES takes advantage of the Li & Fung Group’s international connections. A worldwide network makes it possible to perfectly align production, quality assurance and distribution processes. We are specialists in sourcing products and services promptly, no matter how big or small the quantity. Using our modern high bay warehouse at our Norderstedt headquarters, we have been able to optimise our logistics, with an overall quality assurance check and on-time distribution.
The MILES and Li & Fung network stands out with its 80 locations in 40 countries and its particularly strong presence in Asia. We have more than 220 MILES employees on the ground at our various locations to ensure that our quality standards are applied to all of our products and technology. A range of experienced personnel specialised in various areas, especially textile engineers and technicians are responsible for these tasks. Furthermore, our long-term cooperation with our suppliers guarantees continuity and reliability.
The MILES product line concept is based on our customers’ expectations and wishes and is developed piece-by-piece by a young, dynamic team of designers in Norderstedt. This is where planning, quality control and logistics meet. The process is constantly monitored to ensure that our key goal is always met: customer satisfaction and optimal value for money.
Corporate Social Responsibility: Ensuring Sustainability and Taking Responsibility
MILES believes in corporate responsibility and, for this reason, we have chosen to bind ourselves to the BSCI guidelines. This shows just how seriously we take our responsibility for our employees at our production facilities internationally. We make sure that socially responsible production methods are used and that ethical aspects are also taken into consideration when choosing our production partners.
MILES is working towards greener production. Our production sites are fitted out with technology and infrastructure of the highest quality, which are subject to permanent quality assurance monitoring and constant improvements in order to protect our environment.
