Italian clothing brand, Tucano Urbano, have picked Johnston Logistics UK to ensure they help UK motorcyclists stay protected and look the part.
The Italian designer and manufacturer of stylish motorcycle and scooter clothing and accessories have chosen Johnston Logistics UK to help distribute their full range to UK stockists.
“We’re excited to be working with Johnston Logistics UK on the next phase of our UK growth” says Rachel Fuller, UK Country Manager for Tucano Urbano. “As our brand’s popularity grows, we need a partner who can handle our complete range with care and efficiency. It’s clear Johnston’s appreciate our products and share our passion for reaching new customers across the UK.”
Established in Milan in the early 90’s, Tucano Urbano created the Termoscud leg cover for scooter riders struggling with the cold. Sales of the leg covering, known as ‘Tucano’, quickly rose throughout Italian cities. The company’s range now boasts jackets, helmets, gloves, boots and other protective clothing which blend functionality, comfort and safety with all important Italian style.
Since entering the UK, Tucano Urbano had been using a Heathrow-based warehouse. As demand for their products has risen, so has their need to grow and improve their logistics. Johnston Logistics UK now receives their shipments from Italy before individually picking, packing and dispatching orders to their growing list of UK stockists.
“While visiting stockists I became aware of Johnston Logistics and many of the companies they work with” adds Rachel. “Our decision to partner with them was based on their great service, up-to-date systems and their capacity to carry more stock for the UK market. It’s a relief knowing I can now visit and create new dealers across the UK and Johnston Logistics will keep them stocked.”
“We’re delighted to be able to help Tucano Urbano take their business to the next level” says Rob McIndoe, Director of Johnston Logistics. “We’ve helped a number of specialist clothing and fashion brands by taking away the burden of logistics and freeing them up to concentrate on growth. The smell of Italian leather is certainly welcome in our warehouse!”
Established in 1978, Johnston Logistics UK deliver warehousing, logistics and fulfilment services for businesses throughout Britain and provides a UK hub for many European and global brands. They deliver a complete range of logistics from importing and storage, to packing and transportation.
“Tucano Urbano is an example of how quickly we can start delivering for our new clients” adds Rob. Earlier in 2018, Johnston Logistics UK launched their ‘Easy Switch’ initiative to help businesses quickly and easily improve their logistics. “With our significant investment in IT, processes and people, we can ensure a smooth transition and give our clients peace-of-mind their goods are being handled with care” concludes Rob.
