Musto has revealed that they have appointed Walker Logistics in order to manage their orders. The leading sailing and country sports clothing brand has made the change to Walker Logistics as a part of a wide ranging change to how the company supply chain operates. As part of the new selection, Walker Logistics will be fulfilling orders for Musto’s diverse range of shoes and luggage that has been ordered by trade customers.
In the past Musto has carried out all of their logistics process from two in-house facilities that were located in Essex. However, the company has now decided that it would be a better business move to outsource this part of the supply chain operation to a third party. This could make the sorts clothing producer more efficient.
Also as part of the outsourcing and the wider changes that are being made to the company’s supply chain has allowed the business to consolidate their stock holding so that it can all be found in one unit. This means that the business can sub-let the other unit that was previously used as a storage facility. This sub-letting will make the process more cost effective right away.
As part of the contract that has been agreed between Walker Logistics and Musto it has been decided that Walker will be operating as an extension of the customs warehouse that has been set up by Musto. Walker will be working from the company’s warehouse and multi-user site which is situated close to Reading. At this site the orders will be picked and packed before being dispatched for shipment across the UK and the EU.Hopefully his new partnership between Musto and Walker Logistics will be successful. Walker has expressed its happiness to be working with the technical outdoor clothing brand and hopes that they will be able to assist with improving and expanding the business.
