WINNIPEG, June 4, 2014 /CNW/ - Frontier Supply Chain Solutions Inc. (Frontier), is happy to announce the addition of Quiksilver, Inc. (NYSE:ZQK) to its growing client family. Quiksilver, whose branded apparel, footwear and accessories are sold in more than 100 countries worldwide, is using Frontier's innovative solutions and knowledge of the Canadian marketplace to create a more cost-effective logistics and delivery program to ship product to retailers and Ecommerce consumers across Canada.
"We selected Frontier for their expertise in the Canadian market and their ability to provide easy, dependable full service solutions for our entire Canadian business from A to Z," said Andres Castillo, Senior Vice President of Distribution Operations with Quiksilver Americas.
Frontier specializes in working with businesses to save them money by creating customized supply chain solutions. Their business model is to enable US companies, like Quiksilver, to fulfill direct from their inventories into Canada through their consolidation and distribution network.
"We are extremely excited to work alongside Quiksilver to further expand their reach into Canada," said Michael Butterfield, President and CEO of Frontier. "Being able to scale our solutions as our clients grow is extremely important to us, and we feel there is a very bright future for both our organizations."
By closing their warehouse in Canada and optimizing their own free trade bonded warehouse in Mira Loma, California, Quiksilver's partnership with Frontier will save the action sports company each year in fulfillment costs. Consolidated freight forwarding shipments from Asia and achieving economies of scale on warehousing and transportation will also create huge cost savings for Quiksilver in the near future.
