World Design and Trade (WDT), creators of Firetrap and Fullcircle, has awarded a three-year warehousing contract with European supply chain provider, Wincanton.

 

The operation was previously handled in-house and 18 WDT warehouse employees have now transferred to Wincanton.

 

The contract operates from WDTs 90,000-square-foot warehouse in Acton, where a wide range of mens and womens clothing, shoes and accessories are stored. Millions of stock keeping units (SKUs) are despatched nationally and internationally through online, retail and wholesale routes to market.

Nick Fox, WDTs logistics and operations director, commented: WDT is all about excellence, passion and enthusiasm, values that Wincanton share with us. Outsourcing our warehousing to Wincanton will help us be more efficient and deliver the premium quality service that our customers associate with the Firetrap and Fullcircle brands.
