A2b Fulfillment will now provide Kigo Footwear with inventory management and fulfillment support.
An existing agreement required third-party logistics provider A2b to provide Kigo with warehousing, storage, and shipping services.
Kristin Serrano, Kigo's chief operating officer, said the company’s recent growth necessitated outsourcing. She said the footwear manufacturer was “forced …to decide which tasks are the most important for us to do and which tasks need to supported by competent outside partners. It was hard for us to let go.”
“By partnering with a2b Fulfillment, we streamlined our operation, allowing us to focus on product development, marketing and our customer,” said Rachelle Kuramoto, Kigo’s chief marketing officer.
