Two supply chain specialists The Canute Group, a retail logistics specialist, and Core Management Logistics (CML), who specialise in retail warehousing and efulfilment, have partnered to to launch a new enterprise called TouchPoint.
The TouchPoint service offers importing, exporting, and ecommerce warehousing solutions combined with distribution stripping out the need for additional suppliers for technology, ecommerce and warehousing and providing clients with a single point of contact, claim the duo.
The partnership was formed after Canute were seeking a specialist warehousing solution for their client, Office Depot and chose CML.
David Emslie, group sales director at Canute Group, said: “For over a decade, Canute Logistics have pioneered a specialist service in retail logistics and have supported some of the UK’s best known high street brands.”
“We want to ensure that we can offer a comprehensive, straightforward solution for customers at all touch points in the supply chain, so partnering with CML and combining our collective expertise in the retail supply chain is a perfect solution.”
Mark Webb, managing director at CML, said: “With our 25 years’ retail experience, including importing, exporting, pre-retailing services, specialist fulfilment and ecommerce capability, the TouchPoint proposition is an exciting one.”
Whilst Canute and CML are continuing their respective operations, TouchPoint will be able to support both company’s retail clients, as well as new clients.
TouchPoint will operate from CML’s Lutterworth site on Magna Business Park, supported by Canute’s 14 depots throughout the UK. For more information, visit www.touchpoint-logistics.co.uk
