National retailer, Card Factory, is the one of the first high street chains to launch Christmas each year. Logistics partner, The Pink Link Ltd annually delivers Christmas to Card Factory’s 480 outlets.
Card Factory’s customers like to spread the cost of Christmas and the chain begins stocking Christmas products from late August. This is when The Pink Link Ltd really swings into action, ramping up its service to ensure an ever increasing amount of seasonal product reaches each store at the right time.
The Pink Link Ltd has grown with Card Factory and the partnership between the two Yorkshire based businesses has gone from strength to strength, with The Pink Link Ltd transporting daily from Card Factory’s Wakefield warehouse to locations across the UK.
Card Factory stores are currently showcasing its new Christmas card packs, which again celebrate the company’s partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support. Card Factory has been supporting Macmillan Cancer Support for over four years and last year donated £1 million to the charity.
Card Factory’s Managing Director, Richard Hayes said: "The Pink Link Ltd understands the nature of our business and this is what makes it such a successful partnership. The ability to ramp up and down according to the seasonality of our industry is essential and The Pink Link has the flexibility and professionalism we need."
