Karl Rempp, Schuhhaus Rempp

“Deutsche Post DHL provided support in our transition from a traditional bricks and mortar shoe business to a successful international online retailer – and they have been with us every step of the way. In the early days, around 5-10 pairs of shoes were dispatched per day. Today, we deliver over 100 parcels per day, all safe in the hands of DHL. Six employees now take care of the orders placed via the online shop at www.schuhhaus-rempp.de, sending shoe boxes out to customers all around the world.”

Founded by cobbler Karl Rempp in 1913 in Germany, the shoe company’s history stretches back over 100 years. Indeed, as late as the 1960s, the company was still producing its shoes by hand. The family business is now in the hands of the fourth generation: with Michael and Heike Rempp at the helm, the company has been successfully navigating the waters of e-commerce since 2003.
