Himatsingka appoints Import Services as logistics partner for the UK region
We are delighted to announce that Himatsingka has appointed Import Services as its warehousing and logistics partner in the UK to provide retail supply chain services across its distribution network.
The partnership enables Himatsingka to take full advantage of Import Services’ new Port-centric logistics facility in Southampton, UK. This warehouse location expands by another 30,000 pallets in June this year, providing a real edge in terms of speed to the market from a bonded port-centric logistics location, for both UK and European retail supply chain services.
Ashutosh Halbe, President & CFO – Operations Himatsingka America Inc, commented, “Our search for a UK retail logistics company had two key objectives. We wanted a partner with an established retail logistics services network, which also had competent IT systems that would provide real-time access to our warehousing activities. This would enable us to make informed decisions and speedy parcel deliveries to our customers.”
“This partnership is in line with our strategy of building a robust warehousing and logistics network globally. Import Services has the experience and know-how to provide retail logistics services in the UK market well.” said Akanksha Himatsingka, CEO EMEA and Asia Pacific.
Mike Thomas, Client Services Director at Import Services said, “We are thrilled that Himatsingka has selected Import Services as their retail logistics company. Our bonded, AEO accredited and purpose-built facilities at Southampton container port, offers quayside order processing and speed to market, with the capacity to support Himatsingka’s planned growth. Himatsingka is a forward-thinking and innovative company, which will complement our expanding portfolio of like-minded clients at Import Services.”
