Walker Logistics has entered a partnership agreement with German sales and fulfilment services supplier for consumer goods Limal.
The partnership will allow Walker’s clients to hold stock at Limal’s storage facilities, utilise its in-house sales platforms and fulfil orders bound for mainland Europe from these sites. In return, Limal’s client base will use Walker’s 230,000 sq ft multi-user storage facilities as the hub to store and despatch goods to the UK market. Both company’s clients will continue to interface with their original services provider.
“Our relationship with Limal gives our UK-based customers that export to Germany and other European markets the opportunity to optimise their supply chain efficiency and minimise overheads by physically holding stock closer to the point of consumption,” said Walker Logistics sales and marketing director William Walker. “Of course, it offers the same cost and efficiency benefits for Limal’s clients that sell in to the UK.”
