S2C Operations

The Client

iLeisure is dedicated to supplying high quality children toys & games to the UK market. Our wide range includes Feber product such as Dareway, Mega 4 in Line, & Branded Electric Ride On Cars. We also stock a selection of Sportspower trampolines.

 

The Challenge

Supplier to Consumer (S2C) operations encompasses the complete spectrum of supply chain support from factory gate collection of bulk consignments right through to the delivery of a single unit to and end consumer. It is very rate to find a fulfilment provide that can also oversee freight imports as part of a fully integrated supply chain solution. For our client I Leisure we do exactly that.

 

The Solution

With production in China we are required to collect bulk consignments direct from factory gate. The freight solution encompasses both sea and air freight activity alongside customs clearance and UK port collection. Once the goods are landed at a 3PL receiving depot the fulfilment process can begin.

 

The Result

The convenience of using just one logistics provider for end to end supply chain should not be under estimated. Communication is slick, pricing is transparent, and accountability is clear. Clients also using our freight import services receive priority booking and turnaround.

 

The Inside Track

End to end fulfilment and logistics providers are rare and offer a distinct advantage to the user. Why use 3 different suppliers to cover imports, warehousing and delivery when you can use just one? When utilising full end to end services collective buying power can also prove advantageous.
