Sail Shade World and Voile d'Ombrage France Streamline European Operations

Press release   •   Apr 19, 2016 17:28 BST

Voile d'Ombrage France is an authorized retailer of the Sail Shade World brand of shade products. Recent changes in the on-line ordering and distribution of these products is delivering a 30 percent cost saving to the customer.

Shade Sails were invented in Australia and were introduced to the French market seven years ago. Demand from style-conscious French customers has grown year by year, with the French market becoming the largest in Europe. The product range consists of two main lines: standard size or ready-made sails and custom-size or made-to-measure sails.

The standard-size products are offered in five different sizes ranging from a small 3,6m equilateral triangle up to a 5m x 5m square. The standard sails are manufactured from 220g/m2 material and are available in three different colors : Porcelain, Sand and Grey. These products are held in stock by Voile d'Ombrage France and can be shipped all over Europe in two to three days. The custom-made products are available in three different material weights : 220g/m2, 340 g/m2 and 440 g/m2 and a choice of 15 different colors. Delivery within Europe is 10-14 days from order placement.

In the past the custom sails were ordered from the French distributor and delivered direct to the customer. This meant that the price included the local distributor's mark up and, because the sails are manufactured outside the EU, the customer was required to pay tax and import duty when the sail was delivered. Under the new system, sails are ordered directly from the Sail Shade World on-line quotation system and shipped to a European distribution center in the UK. This has reduced delivery costs through bulk shipping and sails are now delivered to customers with no additional charges to pay. The combined effect of these changes is that the price to the customer has been reduced by 30 percent.
