Import Services will act as DKL’s logistics partner for the UK and Ireland markets.
The new partnership will see DKL import products from its seven award winning brands including Hama Beads, Plus-Plus Construction, PlayMais Craft, Scentco Scented Stationery, Breyer Model Horses, Bloco Construction and Escabbo Bath Toys, through Import Services Southampton-based warehouse operation.
“What attracted us to Import Services as a logistics partner was the many years of experience in the toy sector, the advantages of a port-centric distribution centre and an impressive integrated IT system,” commented DKL managing director, Kai Hawaleska. “It’s vital that we have clear visibility of our products’ movement; from leaving their point of origin to delivery, TRAC allows us to see 24/7 in real time the progress of our products, which is invaluable to our supply chain.”
Mike Thomas, client services director at Import Services, added: “I am thrilled to welcome DKL Marketing to an expanding portfolio of clients embracing our port-centric logistics model, which optimises supply chain to market. The Import Services partnership enables forward thinking companies, such as DKL to gain a business edge and align with the new world of retailing.”
