Topson Downs Inks Service Deal With Port Logistics

11/01/2016
Topson Downs signs a multi-year service contract with gateway logistics firm Port Logistics Group. Topson Downs manufactures apparel in the branded and private-label fast-fashion segment.

Under the agreement, Port Logistics Group, as a third-party logistics provider (3PL) offering B2B and B2C supply chain solutions, will manage the U.S. distribution and fulfillment for Topson Downs from its retail distribution campus in Chino, Calif. The 3PL is providing full-scale services, overseeing the complex flow of Topson Downs' direct-to-consumer and retail orders.

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, COO 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."
