MonarchFx, a Tompkins International company, a nationwide alliance of best-in-class providers focused on delivering value and efficiency through distributed logistics, has announced its newest client, Alex Brands.
The Alex Brands family of brands is comprised of some of the most iconic, recognizable and award-winning toys and games in the industry today. Their mission is to provide children of all ages with quality products that help develop their imagination and creativity, foster personal expression and build self-esteem. Alex Brands consists of several brands of toys, including Alex, Poof, Slinky, Shrinky Dinks, Ideal, Backyard Safari, Zoob, and Scientific Explorer.
Alex Brands began outbound shipping at MonarchFx’s Dallas, TX location last month and will begin processing additional shipments in early 2020.
Alex Brands selected MonarchFx because it enabled them to outsource their logistics operations, enabling them to focus on core business functions including, product development, customer service and developing key direct-to-consumer capabilities to grow their eCommerce business.
“We will use our highly integrated network of people, technology and physical assets to help Alex Brands manage their goods more efficiently throughout their supply chain, helping to ensure customer satisfaction. I was honored to be on site in Dallas with the Alex Brands and MonarchFx teams to take part in the first outbound shipment,” said Jim Tompkins, CEO Tompkins International and MonarchFx.
Kenneth Dunaj, President and COO of Alex Brands, stated, “Since beginning to work with the MonarchFx team our logistics capabilities have increased greatly, and we expect this to continue as we plan further growth into other MonarchFx facilities. We look forward to a long and growing relationship with MonarchFx.”
