Alpha Group has announced its partnership with the Southampton based Import Services.
The long-term agreement involves Import Services facilitating the distribution of Alpha’s products to the UK and Irish retail market by providing inbound shipping from Alpha’s Far East production centres, customs clearance, storage, high volume order processing, pre-retailing services and outbound distribution to Alpha’s customers.

Recently Alpha has also launched a number of new offices across the globe, including operations in North America, France and Spain.

Their experience and expertise, combined with web enabled systems and their port-centric location in Southampton, presented us with a compelling business case.’’
