Who buys overstocks? F&P Stock Solution GmbH has around 6 years of experience in the wholesaling overstocks of shoes, textiles and accessories and today is one of the world's leading wholesalers in this section. Duden defines overstock as "left over from a larger items, an uncleared rest". This definition actually pretty much describes what this business is about. F&P Stock Solution buys customer returns, liquidation goods, pre-season goods and overstocks of big and well-known brands. F&P attaches great importance to long-term and trusting partnerships, not just to its suppliers. Constant control of incoming and outgoing goods guarantees F&P's customers consistently good quality, something that is not found everywhere in the overstock business. When F&P was founded, it was all about the question: "What happens to all the shoes, textiles and accessories that are not sold or come back via customer returns - the overstock?" This is how Julius Göllner and Ole Schneikart, Founder and CEOs of F&P, set out to start a business which answers exactly this question. Today, F&P Stock Solution has around 50 employees, that come from 20 different nations. The team is young, professional and love their work. Customers, that are buying stock from F&P, come from all over the world. Outlets, wholesalers and retail stores from Poland, France, Ukraine, Russia, the Baltics and many more other countries are among the customers who buy overstock shoes and overstock textiles from famous brands. The buyers are usually interested in high-quality goods, even if it comes from overstocks. The term overstock, in times of a "tight is right" mentality, gets a negative connotation which isn't deserved. The purchase and sales of overstock leads to a second lifecycle of the "ascertained" shoes and textiles. Giving a second lifecycle to the products is a good way to reduce the production of new goods, which often ends also as overstocks. Anyone who buys and sells overstocks takes also care about the reduction of CO2 emission and reduces the water consumption that is needed in the production of new shoes and textiles - on the daily basis -. The customers of F&P Stock Solution whom buy overstocks are individual, demanding and expectant. The team is fast and professional. A great mix to further expansion of this business idea in the coming years.   ...

New backup in the team of "Fashion Flash" - Daniel Cikin supports project management as a working student The F&P Stock Solution GmbH is not only one of the world's leading wholesaler of overstocks for brand shoes and branded textiles. With the second pillar of F&P, the pop-up outlet event "Fashion Flash", F&P also sells its products to end customers. The success story of "Fashion Flash" began in 2013 in Chemnitz. From there, the unique event concept spreaded itself as a mix of special shopping experiences, top brands and top quality products in special prices throughout Germany. The establishment of such an event series requires a lot of know-how and project planning. In the five years since founding Fashion Flash, the team at F&P has gained a lot of experiences, especially with social media marketing, and can also use it for other projects. The team around the Head of Event, Georgios Kotsougianis (named “Jorgo”), was growing steadily, not only with these tasks. Since November 01, 2018, another working student supports the work of our Project Manager, Viktoria Eder. Daniel Cikin was born in Falkensee and is an addition to the team. You want to know more about Daniel and his first day at Fashion Flash by F&P Stock Solution: "I'm really looking forward to this adventure F&P Stock Solution and especially to the tasks that “Fashion Flash" helds. I finished my degree in Sports Management a few months ago at the University of Potsdam. I’ve been living in Falkensee and I’m very happy that I have found this job, which offers me everything that I enjoy and also with a super short commute. I love topics like: Events, Organization, Fashion and Sneakers. All these points apply to the company F&P Stock Solution GmbH that's why I decided to start working at F&P. I started at F&P Stock Solution as a Project Assistant for the "Fashion Flash" and was able to take on other tasks after a short time, such as buying. My first days were very interesting, I learned a lot about the subject of Human Resources and was also able to contribute my experiences from my previous time at Adidas in the event sector. In addition, there are many more and new projects at F&P, which I expect with much anticipation. I was warmly and friendly received, for which I thank everyone again. I especially thank for Viktorias and Jorgos confidence, who gave me the possibility to start working at F&P Stock Solution."     ...

"In the rushing time of "digital first", a holistic online presence has become the basic prerequisite for the vibrancy of almost every company type. The truthfulness of this statement applies in particular to the e-commerce industry. If you, as an entrepreneur, are given the necessary attention due to challenges such as a tempting graphical presentation of the website, the user-friendliness of the customer journey of the homepage, the product pages to the digital shopping cart or an individual approach to the clientele, you are already on the right track. However, before a potential customer can even access the company website, the appropriate framework conditions must be created. One point is particularly important: in the broad ocean of search results, the website in question, such as www.stock-solution.de, should end up in the user's list directly at number 1. To ensure that, there is the so-called SEO management, which is more important than ever in this day and age. This includes, for example, a thorough keyword research that combines the specifics of the company with the necessary customer language in order to adapt the contents of the website, be it the idea of the team or the blog.   If you are looking for concise keywords, you should get insights from different sources, and not rely on just one. The operation of the popular keyword research tools is an indispensable step here. In addition, such measures as monitoring competitors' moves, visiting customer forums, tackling keyword recommendations in Google's search box, etc., can be combined in a winning way to cover the widest variety of search queries.   For example, managing an informative corporate blog is one of the best ways to present yourself as a competent business partner and at the same time strengthen your own rankings. The blog posts are primarily intended to provide detailed answers to the burning questions.   Just like in real life, the personal recommendations from customer to customer drive the sales, the online referrals in the form of links from third party websites serve to reinforce the trustworthiness of the corporate website from the perspective of search engines. In addition, the technical aspects also play a significant role in the field of SEO optimization, including the speed of the website, the consistency of internal linking from one website area to another or the addition of additional information about the main content of the respective pages in the form of So-called "metadata" increase the visibility of the Internet presence significantly.   Last but not least, the way Google sorts and evaluates web pages in search results is constantly evolving so you do not get bored with it as an SEO manager. That's why I find the multidisciplinary nature of search engine optimization particularly exciting. Such skills as eloquence, a good understanding of statistical relationships, interest in Internet architecture, and not least common sense are essential in this area. I spent my early childhood in Moscow and then grew up bilingually in northern Italy. During high school, I especially loved the subject of history. After graduation I started my undergraduate studies in Economics at the University of Verona. Later I went to Germany for a further degree and took a master's degree in "International Marketing" at the Technical University of Mittelhessen. My fateful canton Bern, the manageable casting, the former capital Bonn and the splendid Berlin belonged to my previous stations in the context of my erroneous route. Besides my love of European languages, cooking vegan dishes, playing chess and cycling are also my hobbies."   The entire team from F&P wishes Roman a perfect start and an exciting time!   ...

Several truckloads arrive and leave the warehouse every day. A lot of work for the team around Mauro Galluccio, the Head of Logistics at F&P. However, the work in the warehouse doesn’t just consist of stacking boxes and loading and unloading trucks. Every product that received F&P is checked for quality and quantity. This means unloading the truck, unpacking the goods, looking at the goods, checking and sorting, counting and repacking the goods. The so-called inbound check is one of the daily tasks in warehouse operations. Likewise the outbound check for goods, which was sold and should be sent to the customer. Depending on the quality level of the goods, a categorization and, if necessary, packaging according to customer requirements. Every day the warehouse reaches tons of overstocks of shoes and textiles, which once pass through the storage cycle before leaving the company headquarters in Falkensee. A lot of work for the team in the warehouse and since November also for Nils. You want to know more about Nils, our new team member at the warehouse from F&P Stock Solution! "I’m 26 years old and come from Potsdam where I live together with my girlfriend and two beautiful cats. In my free time, I like to cook, go to the cinema or sit relaxed in front of the console. In 2012, I successfully finished my apprenticeship as a warehouse logistics specialist. After half a year I wanted to gain new experiences in a new job and so I started to work at an international logistics giant. Unfortunately I didn’t like it there and so I tried relatively quickly to reorient myself and found a place as Head of the Warehouse for empties at Real. Before starting in the warehouse at F&P have been able to gain more experience with an automotive supplier. Now I am here at F&P Stock Solution and I’m very curious about what expects me and what great people I will get to know here. "   The entire F&P team wishes Nils a really good time and everyone looks forward to working with them.   ...
