DKL Marketing Ltd has appointed Import Services as its logistics partner for the UK and Ireland markets.

Import Services will provide DKL a complete port-centric service, high volume order processing, pick and packing, pre-retailing and distribution throughout the UK and Ireland. 

The new partnership will see DKL import products from its seven award-winning brands including Hama Beads, Plus-Plus Construction, PlayMais Craft, Scentco Scented Stationery, Breyer Model Horses, Bloco Construction and Escabbo Bath Toys, through Import Services’ Southampton based warehouse operation.

“What attracted us to Import Services as a logistics partner was the many years of experience in the toy sector, the advantages of a port-centric distribution centre and an impressive integrated IT system,” commented DKL Managing Director, Kai Hawaleska. 

“It’s vital that we have clear visibility of our products movement, from leaving their point of origin to delivery, TRAC allows us to see 24/7, in real time the progress of our products, which is invaluable to our supply chain.”

Mike Thomas, client services director at Import Services, said he is thrilled to welcome DKL Marketing to an expanding portfolio of clients.  

"The Import Services partnership enables forward thinking companies, such as DKL to gain a business edge and align with the new world of retailing,” he said.
