Formula One is the biggest annual event to visit Australia. It is promoted by the Australian Grand Prix Corporation – as is the second biggest, Moto GP.

Kookai
– Fashion Logistics from Fiji

It is not widely known that Fiji has a flourishing garment industry with markets ranging from high fashion to school uniforms, work wear and sponsor emblazoned football jerseys – all forwarded through Gibson Freight. Fast fashion is a world wide phenomenon no better executed than the partnership between Kookai and Gibson Freight.

 

Fabric and accessories are shipped or airfreighted to Fiji by Gibson Freight Australia and Gibson Cargo Services China. Garments are manufactured in the Suva factory, hang tagged, bar coded and packed to individual store orders ready for airfreighting to Australia and New Zealand.

 

A weeks production from Kookai Suva is trucked to Nadi Airport each Saturday, flown to Australia and New Zealand each Sunday for Monday distribution to Kookai stores by dedicated Gibson Freight truck runs.

 

Fashion garments manufactured in Suva between Monday and Friday of any given week are available to Kookai in store customers throughout Australia and New Zealand the following Monday.

 

Fashion doesn’t get any faster than that!!
