‘Ship to Store Program’
Fast. Direct. Simple.

Import Services has developed a successful working partnership with retailers of all sizes by managing their suppliers’ logistics to market. In 2020 both speed to market and operating efficiency combine as success factors to meet accelerating demands in the new world of retailing;

Import Services is now launching a ‘Ship to store’ program which takes full advantage of the unique quayside facilities, purpose-built to de-van containers swiftly and process FMCG for direct delivery to store, by-passing inland warehouses altogether.

Ship to store offers retailers & their suppliers the optimum route to market, with a compelling service particularly for seasonal injections.

So if you…

Import or are supplied by FMCG products from the Far East / USA, to the UK via container ship. Are seeking a way to cut time, cost & carbon from your current supply chains.

Really could use a business-edge level of service with AEO / bonded facilities, 24/7 information flow & complete reliability?

 

 

Mike Thomas, Client Services Director at Import Services comments, “Ship to store offers retailers alternative routes to market saving time & cost in their supply chains, particularly involving seasonal injections of product lines. Retailers are seeking optimum routes to market in this new world of retailing and this solution is worth evaluating.’’
