Landmark contract for Oakland

Landmark Wholesale, the buying group, has selected Oakland Distribution to providing a centrally located ambient and chilled consolidation service to Landmark’s 32 independent wholesale members and their UK customer base.

Oakland Distribution was created by Redditch-based Oakland International in recognition of the need to take ownership of stock on behalf of wholesale clients.

Under the multi-million pound contract, Oakland collates Landmark members’ orders, purchasing all stock before picking, consolidating and despatching to Landmark members nationally.

Landmark trading controller Gordon Walker said: “Landmark members and customers demand a high level of service in the delivery of chilled and ambient product and we are pleased that Oakland have accepted this challenge and produced a supply chain solution that Landmark members can rely on. Landmark’s membership base has a diverse style that needs individual solutions, which Oakland have been able to provide. With this setup in place, we look forward to developing our Members and their customers businesses rapidly.”
