SEKO Logistics announces partnership with Saltrock

SEKO Logistics has announced a new fulfilment and freight forwarding solutions contract with UK-based clothing brand, Saltrock. The partnership is expected to see SEKO provide logistics to support Saltrock’s intended retail expansion through both its traditional ‘bricks and mortar’ stores and as well as global e-commerce sales.

Saltrock has opened 26 new stores in the last 12 months taking its total number of retail outlets to 42, and has announced plans to double its high street presence to nearly 80 stores in 2016. Incorporating a multichannel approach, Saltrock has also launched a new online retail presence with the aim of reaching an international customer audience from Q4 2015.

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

Dean Townsend, Director of SEKO Logistics, said, “Saltrock is a great business that continues to achieve exceptional growth and wants to give its customers multichannel ways to buy products, both in the UK and globally. The big advantage for Saltrock in working with SEKO is that we give them the scalability to ramp up their sales and order fulfilment to the global market alongside our proven freight forwarding expertise, while our technology provides full visibility of their supply chain from the moment they place a purchase order with a supplier.”

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.”
