Hungerford-based Walker Logistics has been awarded a contract to manage the UK supply chains of Australian cosmetics brand Lanolips.

The deal, which will see Walker Transport oversee Lanolips’ entire UK supply chains, boosts the company’s base of cosmetics clients.

As part of the agreement, Walker Logistics will receive incoming stock at its 250,000 sq ft logistics hub in Berkshire where it will be picked, packed and dispatched to retailers including Boots, Waitrose and Anthropolgie.

The logistics firm will also fulfil online sales generated by Lanolips’ website.

William Walker, sales director at Walker Logistics, said: “With a proven track record of success within the cosmetics industry, Walker has the experience and expertise Lanolips needs as it seeks to further develop its UK market presence.

“Lanolips and Walker are a great fit, and we are delighted that they have joined our rapidly expanding portfolio of clients from the cosmetics sector.”

Walker Logistics also manages the supply chains of cosmetics companies Luxie, New Flag and skin care range Grahams Natural UK. The three companies were added to Walker Logistics' customer base after their third-party distributor entered administration in November last year.

In February this year Walker Logistics reported a 38% year-on-year increase in the number of orders picked, packed and dispatched at its Berkshire logistics hub during the fourth quarter of 2019.
