Quiet Logistics Teams Up With Direct-to Consumer Travel Company AWAY
DEVENS, MA, December 28, 2015 –
Quiet Logistics, the innovative fulfillment provider to premium apparel and lifestyle companies, is pleased to announce its partnership with Away (AwayTravel.com), designing special objects for modern travel. Away launched this year with pre-orders of its innovative carry-on and sells exclusively direct-to-consumer, a model that allows it to offer exceptional product for far less than items of comparable quality (the carry-on is priced at $225).
As logistics partner to Away, Quiet Logistics will facilitate deliveries on behalf of the brand to customers across the United States, and eventually around the world, when its products begin to ship in early 2016. Founded by former Warby Parker executives, Away’s mission centers on pairing beautiful, minimalist design with top-notch materials and clever features intended to make the act of travel more effortless and enjoyable, such as a built-in 10,000 mAh battery to charge electronic devices on the go. Quiet will leverage its excellence in order presentation to speed each item to the consumer in packaging that helps build the brand story, with premium-level personalization and attention to value added details.
“As a new online brand, it’s essential for us to deliver orders in a way that’s true to our brand’s philosophy and that helps inform the consumer about who are and what we stand for,” says Steph Korey, co-founder of Away. “Quiet’s ability to deliver exceptional customer experiences is an integral part of how we plan to grow our brand over time.”
“Away’s mission centers on quality, efficiency and an innovative attitude toward modern life – all values we share,” says Quiet Logistics President Brian Lemerise. “We look forward to leveraging our tech-driven approach to logistics to help the brand scale up and introduce customers to its new concept in travel.”
