Freight and logistics management services provider, Xpediator, has announced that its fashion and lifestyle division, Delamode International Logistics, has secured two new clients in the luxury and boutique sectors of the fashion market.
The new clients are independent fashion retailer Kymina, a UK-based manufacturer of sustainable and environment-friendly swimwear and luxury brand Moose Knuckles Canada, known for its stylish take on functional outerwear, sportswear and accessories, whose products are sold in Selfridges, Flannels and Harrods.
For Kymina, Delamode will be responsible for the storage of the clients’ swimwear range, picking and packing of orders and distribution of deliveries throughout the UK and globally. Similarly, upon arrival at Delamode’s fashion facility, Moose Knuckles’ garments are processed and prepared for dispatch to wholesalers, retailers and individual clients. In addition, as Moose Knuckles is a Canada-based business, Delamode Anglia (freight forwarding division) is also supporting the business with regard to sea container import services and customer clearance formalities.
Earlier in the year, Xpediator announced that the UK logistics division – Delamode Plc (Logistics Division – Braintree, Essex), EMT Logistics (London) and Import Services Limited (Southampton) – was being integrated and rebranded to operate as Delamode International Logistics. As a result of the integration, the London fashion facility has been awarded bonded status as an extension of the certification granted to the Southampton warehousing facility. Bonded warehouses have the capability to defer import tariffs on clients’ goods until the items or distributed or sold, providing more financial headroom and time to choose when and where their products should be distributed.
“We are very excited to be working with these two significant fashion labels, who are both situated in the luxury end of the market which we are shifting our focus towards,” commented Luke Croome, COO of the Fashion & Retail Division at Xpediator. “The Group’s move towards integrating the division under one brand is already showing clear benefits, with the bonded status of our Beckton warehouse providing exciting opportunities for existing and potential clients as a true one stop fashion facility for all warehousing and logistical services.”
