Import Services, Southampton’s leading contract logistics firm, has secured a full service contract for New Bright, a Chinese toy manufacturer
specialising in the production of radio control model vehicles. Import Services is to provide a full door to door logistics management service from Purchase Order tracking at the manufacturing origin, to shipping, storage, order processing, labelling, pick / pack and distribution to retailers
throughout the UK.
Following the successful development of its key US market, where New Bright is widely recognised as the biggest premium brand, the Company has taken a
strategic decision to expand its operations in the UK and Continental European markets in 2006.
New Bright’s UK team, based in Bracknell, is responsible for all sales and marketing in the UK, Benelux and Germany. In order to focus on the marketing and sales drive in these countries, New Bright has awarded Import Services
its logistics contract. Key to this is the replenishment orders to the main retail multiples and to provide pick / pack and distribution to smaller multiples and independent stores. The initial UK range will be marketed
with great models such asFerrari, Rock Crawler and Hummer imports
commencing in August this year.
