Delamode International Logistics secures new luxury and boutique fashion clients
Xpediator, (AIM: XPD), a leading provider of logistics and warehousing services across the UK and Central and Eastern Europe, is pleased to announce that the Group’s fashion & lifestyle division, Delamode International Logistics (“Delamode”), has recently secured two new clients in the luxury and boutique sectors of the fashion market.
One of the clients is independent fashion retailer Kymina, a UK based manufacturer of sustainable and environment-friendly swimwear. The other is a luxury brand Moose Knuckles Canada, known for their stylish take on functional outerwear, sportswear and accessories. Both of whose products are sold in Selfridges, Flannels and Harrods.
Delamode is well-positioned to fulfil the clients’ warehousing and distribution needs with a dedicated fashion facility in London. For Kymina, Delamode is responsible for the storage of the clients’ swimwear range, pick and pack services and distribution of deliveries throughout the UK and globally. Similarly, upon arrival at Delamode’s fashion warehouse storage facility, Moose Knuckles’ garments are processed and prepared for dispatch to wholesalers, retailers and individual clients. In addition, as Moose Knuckles is a Canadian based business, Delamode Anglia (freight forwarding division) is also supporting the business with regard to sea container import services and customer clearance formalities.
Earlier in the year, Xpediator announced that the UK distribution warehouse and logistics division – Delamode Plc (Essex fulfilment centre), EMT Logistics (fashion warehousing solutions in London) and Import Services Limited (Southampton port-centric logistics facility) – was being integrated and rebranded to operate as Delamode International Logistics. As a result of the successful integration, the London fashion warehousing facility has been awarded bonded status as an extension of the certification granted to the Southampton port-centric logistics and warehousing facility. Bonded warehouses have the ability to defer import tariffs on clients’ goods until the items or distributed or sold, providing more financial headroom and time to choose when and where their products should be distributed.
Luke Croome, COO of the Fashion & Retail Division at Xpediator said;
“We are very excited to be working with these two significant fashion labels, who are both situated in the luxury end of the market which we are shifting our focus towards. The Group’s move towards integrating the logistics and warehousing division under one brand is already showing clear benefits. The bonded status of our Beckton warehouse storage centre provides exciting opportunities for existing and potential clients as a true one-stop fashion logistics facility for all warehousing and distribution services.”
