The partnership allows Topson Downs to focus on its core competency of designing on-trend apparel. "We were looking to strengthen our company by partnering with a 3PL who offers best-in-class logistics and distribution as well as with a company that shares our same core values," said Kelly Gordon, Chief Operating Officer at Topson Downs. "After a lengthy RFP process, Port Logistics Group stood out from their competitors not only as experts in their field, but in their company culture and the importance of relationships to them both internally and externally."
Many former warehouse employees of Topson Downs will be retained at Port Logistics Group's Chino campus, allowing for a seamless transition and greater sharing of knowledge across the two companies.
"Topson Downs is a significant account for us. It's really a great marriage between two rapidly growing companies," said Brian Weinstein, Vice President of Business Development at Port Logistics Group, noting the customer will benefit tremendously by utilizing a sophisticated warehouse management system that can take advantage of a single physical inventory location for all of their multiple selling channels through Port Logistics Group's proprietary warehouse management system, EventTracker.
Weinstein added: "Ecommerce is growing fast and IT capabilities are a key component of omnichannel. In addition to the strength of our WMS, we have an in-house engineering department and retail implementation experts on staff to give us the flexibility to meet Topson Downs' needs as they evolve in a rapidly changing marketplace."
