Cubitts, the spectacle and sunglasses manufacturing company and retailer has revealed that they have outsourced a part of their UK supply chain to Walker Logistics. The London based eyewear company was first founded in 2012 and works to offer their customers a range of stylish frames. The company creates amazing designs for men and women, available in a number of retail outlets across the most fashionable locations in London as well as online on Cubitts’ website.
The demand for the British manufacturing company’s products has increased at a significant rate, and because of this it was decided that the business would benefit from a dedicated storage resource and extra supply chain expertise. After a competitive tender for the contract, Walker Logistics was appointed. The Berkshire based company will be handling two sections of the supply chain to begin with. Walker Logistics will first receive the inbound products from the Far East which will then be used to replenish the stock of cases and accessories in Cubitts’ London shops in component form or as complete kits processed through Walker’s specialist re-work division.
Walker was awarded the contract because of their expertise in value-added and returns management. It is expected that, going forward, Walker will be used by Cubitts to support the innovative ‘Home Try On’ service that is offered by the eyewear manufacturer to its customers. This service allows online customers to trial four frames at home for a week. The frames that are chosen by the customer are packed in a kit that is specially designed and sent to the customer’s address. Following this, the customer will hopefully make an order for their preferred frame, while returning all four of the test frames back to Cubitts. In order to successfully offer an efficient Home Try On service requires logistics partner that has a strong reputation and experience with managing value added services and returns. Therefore, Walker Logistics are well suited to this new contract and will offer an excellent quality service for Cubitt’s customers.
