Supporting International Footwear Brands

PFS Client - On Running

Performance running shoe brand On enlisted PFS as their UK fulfillment partner in July, 2021

As demand grew in the UK, long delivery times (5+ days) from Europe resulted in poor customer experiences. PFS’ in-country fulfillment solution enables next day shipping options and has greatly improved customer satisfaction.

During The Laver Cup 2022 in which Roger Federer played his final career match, On launched their special edition shoe, THE ROGER Advantage LC22, with great success. When demand for the shoe exceeded expectations, On looked to PFS for support. The PFS team delivered 300+ pairs of shoes overnight, working overtime to pick the order and providing real-time updates to the On team along the way – A perfect example of our team’s “Always On” attitude.

Laver Cup Event - On Running and PFS

PFS helped to make the Laver Cup event a great success for us. Without the stock delivered by the team so quickly and effectively, we would have missed out on key sales for THE ROGER Advantage LC22. PFS understood our needs and have all the capabilities required in a fulfillment provider to deliver. Since July 2021, PFS has met our high expectations, and we look forward to the relationship continuing as they support our order fulfillment operations.
