Illinois-based SEKO Logistics has recently launched an expansion to their White Glove Service that now includes a full assembly service for heavyweight and bulky eCommerce items from business-to-consumer, the new expansion has been launched nationwide.

SEKO Logistics completed nearly one million White Glove home deliveries in 2017 this was achieved through their network of over 60 locations across the United States. Recent projections claim this figure will be doubled by the year 2020.

President & CEO for SEKO Logistics, James Gagne said, “a combination of SEKO’s network, service capability, customer experience, technology and great timing means our sponsorship of Home Delivery World 2018 promises to open up significant new business opportunities with the more than 1,500 retailers attending ‘the event’ for retail logistics.”

“We have been successfully developing our Home Delivery services for several years, so the decision to launch a full assembly solution is a natural progression for us – and it could not be happening at a more opportune time. The interest from retailers, brands and consumers in value-added home delivery services has never been greater and while the threshold for such deliveries has traditionally been around 150lbs, this is now moving down further to around 100lbs, opening up even more opportunities. We’re responding to this trend.” he further commented.

With the addition of the new full assembly service option, which includes removing packaging, setup, installation and syncing smart devices to their vast range of delivery services completes the circle for the company’s eCommerce home delivery scope on over-sized and high-value products.

Mr. Gagne further commented, “In the Home Delivery market, we’ve established a reputation for being reliable, flexible, customer-centric and cost-effective. We’re able to do that because we’re not a company that is locked into rigid schedules. We’re able to respond quickly to where the industry is going. Some logistics companies don’t want this type of business because it doesn’t conform to their rigid operating models but, for SEKO, it enables us to showcase everything we’re best at.”

Finally adding “What we offer fits perfectly with the distribution infrastructure of so many U.S. retailers, which still prefer to operate from one central warehouse and find it more advantageous to use air freight, rather than set up regional distribution centers to achieve the necessary speed of delivery.”
