Ekol Poland starts comprehensive logistics services with Regatta Ltd.
At the begging of January Ekol opened a company in Sweden but it still keeps developing the current locations and expending the services. Ekol Logistics is launching comprehensive logistics services in the branch in Poznań, Poland.
“We established cooperation with Regatta the UK’s best loved outdoor clothing company selling outdoor clothes and equipment. Currently this customer is using our storage, VAS, picking shipments services and in the future also bonded warehouse services will be added. At the first stage of cooperation we are talking at about 650.000 pcs. of about 4000 SKU’s stored on about 2.000 sq. m. of a high racking system warehouse. After the successful implementation we will start with the second stage which means enlarging the scope of services for other European countries and several-fold increase the amount of stored goods.” – said Marcin Trawczyński, Branch Manager of Ekol in Poznań.
Most of Ekol customers come from the automotive, hi-tech, fashion, retail, industry, FMCG and healthcare sectors. The company has the know-how of the fashion sector as 16 % of the global turnover comes from this industry.
Fashion is more and more demanding as changes of collections are more frequent nowadays. It is key to follow all trends in this sector to be able to offer the best logistics solutions.

About RegattaWhen our adventure began, there were just 12 of us. It was 1981.Back then the outdoors was about intrepid explorers, but we just wanted to open our front door and have fun. And we wanted everyone else out there with us too. So, we made great products that people could afford, clothing to get them outside and enjoying the fresh air without worrying what it would cost. That’s still what counts for us. And we’re still doing it... Still thinking of innovative ways to help people, still inspired by the great outdoors and still hanging by the front door when you need us. And it’s still what counts for the ramblers, amblers, hikers and bikers. campers and gardeners and daily commuters, dog walkers, show jumpers and multi-tasking mums, picnickers, backpackers, kids playing ball and dads at the footie, urban roamers and beachcombers and puddle-loving children and everyone else we’ve helped start their own adventure. Regatta offer outdoor active, outdoor lifestyle, footwear, camping and accessories ranges for the whole family. So, whatever the weather, Regatta has you covered.
