How do we have so many clients?


Simple, as we are a wholesale network, we offer a single solution for one of the largest wholesale catalogs in the world along with standard trade pricing and with access to the UK's lowest shipping rates which is obviously very attractive to trade members across the globe. Add on the fact we place daily bulk orders as one on behalf of our clients as well as paying pro form for the shipments. We then move the goods in bulk to one of our many UK based distribution centers to repack goods on our clients behalf and direct ship to their customers or trade premise.  For some of our wholesale partners, we have set up dedicated in house packing areas for direct to consumer logistics. We offer this set up, software and staff training free of charge. Our clients include some of the UK's biggest retailers including Tesco and we work with thousands of retailers across the globe eager for new trade items to bring to their customers. We also offer a lower MOQ for wholesale collecting many smaller customers that would normally be of no interest to a wholesaler. With thousands of these, collectively using their daily group buying power, we package these up into one daily bulk pro forma order which usually runs into the thousands for the majority of our current wholesale partners. In essence we manage thousands of small sellers, collect payments and place single bulk orders with our wholesale partners while providing logistics for our retailers. Cash flow is the single biggest issue effecting trade today, we have pioneered a way around this cash flow issue by allowing our clients to list all products without needing to purchase upfront. This gathers new sales for both wholesalers and retailers leading to a boost in trade business. Accessing these new markets and clients will allow your wholesale business to increase without effecting any current sales channels.



Hawthorn Distribution also offer an optional solution for wholesalers to pass on to their bricks and motor business's and we assist them to embrace and evolve into the online scenes as well as maintaining their high street status. Currently we have clients using this service in 7 European couriers, we continue to expand our reach for our wholesale partners to assist them in gaining sales in new markets.  We understand general shop keepers are not internet experts, this is where we come in and help them set up an E-commerce platform to access and reach a new customer base.  We provide a white label ready stocked (With your specific wholesale  items only) & fully managed websites with integration and product dispatch handling allowing high street owners to focus on their core business. Your clients simply need to handle their customer emails, we handle the rest.  We have saved countless high street business by helping them to diversify to sell online to tap into a huge source of customers that could never otherwise have visited their shop to access their products. This is an optional service for wholesalers.
