Online retailers are due to benefit from next-day delivery services seven days a week from Walker Logistics, starting with March. Walker is partnering with Royal Mail and DPD, which will operate regular Sunday collections from the company’s Berkshire distribution hub.
Even if an online order is placed on Sunday, consumers will still receive their goods within 24 hours. Some of Walker’s fashion clients include sports clothing brand Musto and Pampelone Clothing.
“Traditionally anyone buying online on Sunday has had to wait until Tuesday before their order arrives or is ready for collection. Now Walker Logistics clients can offer their customers the option of ordering on Sunday and getting their goods on Monday,” said William Walker, sales director of Walker Logistics.
“The online retail market is exceptionally competitive, and it is accepted that the efficiency of an online retailer’s fulfilment process is as important to that company’s ability to win business and retain customer loyalty as the price and quality of the products it sells. We believe that by giving Walker Logistics’ clients the opportunity to offer next-day delivery – even to Sunday shoppers – we are handing online retailers an advantage over their rivals,” William Walker added.
Established in 1999, Walker Logistics offers logistics services to a broad range of clients from a facility close to junction 14 of the M4.
