Sailing and country sports clothing brand Musto has appointed Walker Logistics to fulfil orders for its range of shoes and luggage to trade customers.
The retailer had previously managed its entire logistics process in-house, operating from two warehouse facilities in Essex. However following a review of operations the company took the decision to outsource part of its operations to a third party specialist instead.
The company says it has already achieved savings after being able to consolidate its stock-holding within just one unit – allowing it to sub-let the other as a result.
Under the terms of the contract, Walker will act as an extension of Musto’s customs warehouse set-up from their multi-user site close to Reading and orders will be picked, packed and dispatched for shipment to customers throughout the UK and EU.
Walker Logistics’ sales director, William Walker, said: “Musto is a high-end name in technical outdoor wear and we are delighted to be working with the company to help Musto further develop its already very successful business and highly prestigious brand.”
