Himatsingka is pleased to appoint Import Services as its logistics partner in the UK to provide retail supply chain services across their distribution network.
“Our search for a UK based logistics partner had two key objectives: We wanted a partner with an established retail logistics network, who also had competent IT systems that would provide real time access to our business activities. This would enable us to make informed decisions and speedy delivery to our customers,” said Ashutosh Halbe, President & CFO – Operations Himatsingka America Inc.
“This partnership is in line with our strategy of building robust logistics network globally. Import Services has the experience and know-how to service the UK market well,” added Akanksha Himatsingka, CEO EMEA and Asia Pacific.
The partnership enables Himatsingka to take full advantage of Import Services’ new Container Port facility at Southampton Container Port, UK. This location expands by another 30,000 pallets in June this year, providing a real edge in terms of speed to market from a bonded port-centric location, for both UK and European supply chains.
“We are thrilled that Himatsingka has selected Import Services as logistics partner. Our bonded, AEO accredited and purpose-built facilities at Southampton container port, offers quayside order processing and speed to market, with the capacity to support Himatsingka’s planned growth. Himatsingka is a forward-thinking and innovative company, which will complement our expanding portfolio of like-minded clients at Import Services,” concluded Mike Thomas, Client Services Director at Import Services.
