With experience in business to consumer, wholesale and supply to high-street retailers such as John Lewis, Argos and Amazon, we offer a complete fulfilment solution to suit all needs. Store anything from cases, cartons and pallets of stock and we will create a bespoke fulfilment package for you.
A world leading manufacturer of vacuum cleaners and outdoor power equipment, our client was initially supplying to high street retailers. Looking to break into the B2C market, they required a fully integrated and seamless logistics solution that would cater for the full process – from taking direct delivery of the manufactured goods, to fulfilling orders and delivering to the customers.
Our client, an established B2C internet retailer of gym and fitness equipment, was initially working out of a self-storage centre. After much success, it was decided that they would outsource fulfilment to allow for growth and scalability.
With patented industrial products and technologies, our client is an innovative leader in the commercial cleaning and maintenance products industry based in the USA.
With an extensive branded line of products, it was time to expand into the UK market in which they turned to The Storage Place to handle the complete fulfilment process on their behalf.
