Walker Logistics has stepped in and added three cosmetic and skin care customers to its list after their third-party distributor entered administration.

It is now managing the supply chains for Luxie, New Flag and therapeutic skin care range Grahams Natural UK.

All three had previously outsourced their logistics processes to a haulage company, but turned to Walker when that business was placed into administration earlier this year.

William Walker, Walker Logistics sales director, said: “I am pleased to say that the transfer of stock from the original logistics company went extremely smoothly and in all three cases there was no significant disruption to the client’s downstream supply chain.

“Logistics managers within cosmetics companies and their 3PL partners face unique challenges and must handle a high throughput and volume of product compared to many other industries, understand sensitivity to temperature and handling restrictions and ensure strict compliance conformance.”
