The World’s largest Playing Card and Board Games manufacturer Cartamundi, has appointed Import Services as retail logistics partner for the UK and Ireland.

The manufacturing company, with historic Belgian roots is particularly well known for producing playing cards and household brand games.

Cartamundi’s products are manufactured at their own plants in Altenburg (Germany), Sant-Max (France), Krakow (Poland), Waterford (Ireland), Mumbai (India), Soka-City (Japan), East Long Meadow (Massachusetts) and Dallas (Texas).

Cartamundi brought Import Services on board as they looked for a UK 3PL provider at a container port site to provide bonded storage andcustoms clearance services with the capability of high-volume order processing, pre-retail services and distribution to a wide range of customers.

Mike Thomas, Client Services Director at Import Services said, “Cartamundi is the world class manufacturer of playing cards and board games. We are therefore very excited this great company has chosen Import Services as UK & Eire logistics partner. Our AEO accredited and Customs bonded facilities, adjacent to Southampton’s Container Port is a real gamechanger for Cartamundi, as they move to a 3PL model and focus on business growth.

Daniel King, General Manager UK at Cartamundi said, “Import Services has a great understanding of the retail market and offers us a port-centric supply chain model with a valuable array of services and real time information flow,’’ he continues, “Working with the team at Import Services we will be able to process our manufactured inventory for distribution to our customer base in the UK, Eire and to overseas markets efficiently, giving us a pre-Brexit edge.
