The vente-privee group, based in Saint-Denis, close to Paris, is the founder of Europe’s leading shopping club and operates its online business based around shopping events. Since 2001, vente-privee has been the market leader in selling discounted designer fashion, achieving a turnover of 3 billion euros (2016) with its 4,500 employees. The shopping club delivers to 50 million members in 14 different countries. Every day, tens of thousands of orders with a very low number of items per customer order have to be processed – all in the face of a rapidly changing article range. By choosing systems by KNAPP and Dürkopp Fördertechnik – a combination of the OSR ShuttleTM and the pocket sorter system – vente-privee is investing in a solution geared towards the future.
