Saltrock picks Seko for bricks to clicks

Lifestyle brand Saltrock is using Seko Logistics’ fulfilment and freight forwarding services for both its traditional ‘bricks and mortar’ stores and online sales.

The retailer currently has 42 stores and plans to double its high street presence to nearly 80 stores in 2016. It has also launched a new online retail presence that will enable the brand to reach out to its growing international customer audience from Q4 2015.

Seko is providing fulfilment for Saltrock’s 15-20,000 orders a month at its new 152,000 sq ft logistics centre in Milton Keynes. Since the start of the contract, it has also been awarded the freight forwarding contract to manage air and seafreight movements from Saltrock’s major suppliers in China and India.

Saltrock’s head of digital and marketing Richie Jones said: “Saltrock needed a fulfilment and freight forwarding solution that could both manage our current multichannel business efficiently and grow with us as we expand. We chose Seko as the system has excellent international capabilities and we have every confidence that the business is perfectly placed to manage Saltrock’s growing requirements.”
