April brings a shower of new customers

April was great month for our new business team with some fantastic online retailers joining us for our fulfilment services - with a particular interest in our eCommerce platform connectivity , carrier integrationsand specialist servicesspecialist services.

Get to know a selection of our new partners here:

Vendula London

Vendula London is a fun, original fashion accessories brand with an international client base. Their iconic designs cover bags, purses, wallets and cases that have been inspired by nature, shop fronts and vintage style. Made from animal-friendly vegan leather, the brand cares about the materials it uses in every item and manufacturers the pieces themselves to ensure quality is meticulously controlled.

With an inhouse team controlling the entire business since 2003, Vendula London had grown consistently year-on-year. Highlighting that they needed help with international export services, the business decided it was time to outsource to a specialist fulfilment provider. The client required an API with their Magento site and for up to 50 orders a day to be tracked for global distribution via a range of carriers – we recommended Trakpak for the EU, DHL for express US and Royal Mail for the UK.

Fruity Towels

The Fruity Towels product range has been designed for outdoorsy people looking for a compact and innovative towel to support their lifestyle. The waffle microfiber material is ultra-absorbent with the ability to soak up to one-litre of water, dries three times faster than cotton and is soft to the touch. It also allows you to leave the sand on the beach with one shake, it’s odour resistant and made from recycled material! What more could you want from a towel?

Recommended to us by a fellow online retail friend, Fruity Towels came on board with a selection of fruity themed SKUs after a site visit that left them impressed with our facilities and technology.

Fortis Trading

Fortis Trading operates as biohackednutrition.com. The meaning behind the customer facing brand is to aid your bodily processes with the right nutrients and supplements to make them as efficient as possible. The product range therefore covers herbal tea and superfoods as well as its flagship Bulletproof range. As the only Bulletproof online seller in the UK they stock an extensive selection which includes a coffee roasts and supplements.

We were approached by Fortis Trading due to problems they were experiencing with their previous fulfilment provider. They required a quick and easy Shopify integration as well as support from a local business with an expert approach. We ticked all the boxes and welcomed them onboard.

ALLEVEN

London based ALLEVEN launched their UK operation in May 2018. The cosmetics brand believes that taking care of your body should be a joyful experience and developed its ColourShield product to look after skin through protection, hydration and colour. Its ColourScreen technology provides corrective coverage thanks to smart pigments that reflect light, blur imperfections and even out skin tone for luminous looking skin.

Cosmetics are categorised as dangerous goods and as such require specialist handling and fulfilment. ALLEVEN approached us as they were having difficulty finding a supplier with a dangerous goods license and they were struggling to open accounts with UKMail and DHL as a result to ship internationally. The additional of our WooCommerce API integration sealed the deal.
