Polish-owned, Indigo Nails, has appointed Walker Logistics to undertake fulfilment of orders for its range of nail care and home spa cosmetics products to its growing client base in the UK.
The decision to establish a storage and distribution hub in the UK will allow Indigo Nails to cut order delivery times and improve supply chain cost efficiency.
Walker’s extensive experience in the cosmetics sector and understanding of the regulations that must be met when storing ‘dangerous goods’ were important factors in Indigo Nails’ decision to select the Berkshire-based company as its logistics partner.
“Nail polish is classified as ‘dangerous goods’ and many of our administrative and operational staff are trained in dangerous goods compliance,” says William Walker, sales director of Walker Logistics.
Walker will receive incoming orders at their 250,000 sq ft multi-user storage facility and pick, pack and despatch both replenishment stock to Indigo Nails’ retail stockists and fulfil online orders directly to consumers.
William Walker added: “Setting up a logistics operation in the UK is part of Indigo Nails’ growth strategy. Being geographically closer to the market means fulfilling orders for the UK will be quicker and cheaper than operating from a site in mainland Europe, which, in turn, will drive future growth. We are looking forward to working with Indigo Nails and helping the company meet its development targets in the months ahead.”
