Importing with Style!
Katie Alice Partners with Delamode International Logistics!

Katie Alice Ltd, a leading retailer of vintage inspired homeware and kitchen accessories has selected Delamode International Logistics trading as Import Services as logistics partner, for what is certain to be a busy year ahead.

Formed just over ten years ago, Katie Alice is now Globally recognised and their whimsical designs, led by a love for vintage florals has become household staples. Products range from everyday kitchen items to home fragrance and phone cases.

After previously utilising a successful licensing model for Worldwide distribution, Katie Alice has made the strategic decision to bring wholesale logistics in house, hence the partnership with an established provider such as Delamode.

Like many businesses with a strong online presence Katie Alice witnessed a surge in demand throughout the Pandemic and a robust distribution solution was necessary. After a thorough, vetting process including a shortlist of five alternative warehousing and distribution suppliers; Delamode was selected.

Matt Searle, Director at Katie Alice, comments, “A key driver for the decision to appoint Delamode has been their impressive bonded warehousing and the benefits that come with utilising it. Compound that with Brexit having taken place and the complexities that inevitable arose, we wanted to partner with a supplier that had a great track record for supporting Clients with Brexit solutions”.

In addition, Matt cites the port-centric location as another principal reason for selecting Delamode, “The Southampton based warehouse location makes a compelling business case, negating the need to truck stock miles inland, with a positive effect on both time and cost.”

Matt continues, “We were also impressed by the approachable manner in which our discussions took place, Delamode made it clear from the very beginning that our business was valuable to them and as such carefully provided solutions to any challenges we posed.”

Mike Thomas, Client Services Director, Import Services adds, “We are delighted Katie Alice appointed Delamode as logistics partner, they are a forward-thinking, growing company.

Katie Alice is an exciting, well led business and we very much look forward to working together in a great supply chain partnership.”
