Berkshire-based logistics services company, Walker Logistics, is supporting its clients that take part in trade shows and other temporary promotional events with a new bespoke point-of-sale fulfilment service.
William Walker, Walker’s sales director, explains: “Throughout the year a number of our clients take stands at events such as the Hampton Court Flower show and other high profile sports and music festivals and sell their products directly to the public.
He continues: “We can help them by not only picking, packing and delivering the stock that they need for a temporary sales outlet, but also by providing, for example, assistance with building the stand, general set-up and on-demand replenishment if they want us to.
“Of course, at the end of an event we’ll take any unsold goods back in to stock, break down the stand and dispose of any rubbish in any environmentally-friendly way.”
He adds: “There are many ways in which logistics service providers can create extra value for a client and we see this as one of them. There is no such thing as a ‘normal contract’ any more. You simply have to offer more than simple warehousing and distribution if you want to have an edge in this business.”
