New York, January 23, 2024 - Today channel-free logistics platform Fillogic announces it will support modern luxury footwear brand Koio to offer a more efficient, cost-effective and sustainable logistics solution near their U.S. customers. Specifically, Fillogic will manage Koio’s ecommerce and store fulfillment, reverse logistics and transportation optimization.
Fillogic converts under-utilized retail space in shopping malls into middle-mile fulfillment and reverse logistics hubs. Their proprietary Connected Technology Platform will integrate with Koio’s existing systems and allow them to ship to 98% of the mainland U.S. in three days or less. Retailers and brands using Fillogic improve service and reduce costs by up to 60%, improve return-to-stock by up to 70% and increase full-price sales by 180%.
Sustainable logistics is a shared value between the two companies. Koio hosts a recycling program for customers to minimize the environmental impact of their shoes and is developing a regenerative leather supply chain. This means they’re making shoes that are 100% sourced from regenerative farms but also 100% biodegradable. In tandem, Fillogic helps its customers use five times less warehousing space, which saves 80% on warehousing emissions and 20% on transport emissions.
"We’re thrilled to partner with Koio and offer them a channel-free logistics model. Consumers today don’t shop by the old omnichannel model. They shop channel-free and just want their stuff. They want their items shipped and returned faster, at a lower cost, with a focus on sustainability," said Fillogic Founder and CEO, Bill Thayer. "By taking a channel-free approach, Koio can support the needs of their customers, all while reducing environmental impact. We’re excited to grow with them.”
"After having gone through a few logistics partners that did not keep up with their promises, trust and reliability were key for us in choosing a new 3PL. The Fillogic team impressed us with their organization, proactivity and direct communication," says Koio CEO, Chris Wichert.
