MGA not toying around with omnichannel upgrade

By Retail Technology | Wednesday October 27 2021 | UPDATED 27.10.21

Toys and entertainment products maker MGA Entertainment has implemented a new omnichannel solution for final mile deliveries

MGA’s new transport and warehouse contract will see Wincanton store, pick and deliver around 250,000 products per week during peak sales periods.

The operation will begin in October 2021 and will replenish over 190 major retailers, supermarkets and independents across the UK. For larger products, Wincanton will also provide a two-person premium home delivery service direct to customers’ homes.

Ambition

The contract also sees Wincanton providing solutions such as Amazon Vendor Flex, pre-retail repacking, security tagging and returns processing.

Tony Thomson, UK operations director at MGA Entertainment, said: “We chose Wincanton to ensure we have a partner that matches our ambition and has the capability of delivering our planned growth to the level of excellence our products demand.”
