Company Background

ASTRA, "Star" in Latin, was founded as an independent holding in Hong Kong and is present in 17 countries with offices and representatives in major sourcing markets including Bangladesh, China, India, Thailand, Turkey and Vietnam.

ASTRA Supply Chain Services Limited (ASTRA) is a subsidiary of Hermes-OTTO International (H-OI), a member of the Otto Group. Otto Group is a globally active group of retailers and retail- related service providers. With 123 major companies, the Group has a presence in more than 20 countries in Europe, North and South America, and in Asia. The Group's activities are structured into three segments: Multichannel Retail, Financial Services and Services. The companies in the Services segment offer all services along the logistics value chain – from procurement, through quality testing, transport, warehousing up to delivery for private and business customers.

ASTRA was formerly a corporate branch of H-OI, providing strategic direction and global services in the areas of quality assurance and compliance for the group companies. In 2013, as a result of increasing demand for reliable and accurate information in the supply chain from external customers, ASTRA was set up as an independently operated third party supply chain services provider with its own management structure, committees, personnel, reporting system, and decision making process.

With over 40 years of experience and know-how gained from serving group companies, our extensive knowledge of major sourcing countries and our unique information systems, ASTRA is perfectly positioned to offer hands-on and competent support for the management of your supply chain.
