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 clothing 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 Operations Director for Tucano Urbano. “As our brand’s popularity grows, we need a partner who can handle our clothing with care. It’s clear Johnston’s appreciate our products and share our passion for reaching new customers across the UK.”
Established in Milan in 1999, Tucano Urbano (which translates from Italian as Urban Toucan) make jackets, trousers, helmets, gloves, boots and other protective clothing for discerning urban motorcyclists. Whilst their fashionable range originally targeted scooter and motorcycle owners in cities like Rome and Naples, it is proving ever more popular with young and classic motorcyclists across Britain.
Since entering the UK in 2012, Tucano Urbano have been using a Heathrow-based warehouse to store their goods. As demand has risen, they’ve sought a logistics partner to take on responsibility for receiving, managing and distributing their goods. They now send shipments from Italy direct to Johnston Logistics UK who individually pick, pack and dispatch orders to their growing list of UK stockists.
“Living locally to Norwich, I knew of Johnston Logistics and many of the companies they work with” adds Rachel. “What I didn’t yet know was the range of services they could deliver. 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.
