Matkahuolto and Dermoshop: successful, reliable and sustainable collaboration since 2019
Matkahuolto was selected as a supplier for Dermoshop in March 2019
Matkahuolto operates an extensive pick-up point and parcel locker network, offering a great delivery solution. Matkahuolto Near Parcel and Home Delivery are both used for online order deliveries.
Many Dermoshop customers have formed ordering pools and for instance order products together with their colleagues. Christmas sales account for 30% of the company’s total annual sales. Most of the online orders are placed on Sundays, which means that the peak time for deliveries is in the early part of the week.
“We guarantee delivery in 2–3 days and we want our customers to be able to choose the pick-up point that best suits them. It’s good to offer different options and flexibility, so the pick-up points and parcel lockers are essential,” says Ann-Sofie Strand, Chief Marketing Officer.
“Our delivery times are now faster and our customers receive the important seasonal deliveries on time,” says Juhani Leppänen, Key Account Manager, Matkahuolto.
Matkahuolto was named Finland’s most sustainable parcel delivery and logistics brand in the Sustainable Brand Index, a significant factor for Dermoshop. Read more
“Sustainability is becoming increasingly important, and for some of our customers it is an absolute priority,” says Ann-Sofie Strand.
Dermosil – reliable skincare
The story of Dermosil began in 1983 in Korsnäs. Since 1988, the company has specialised in skincare products. Everything began from high-quality products that were gentle to the skin, which Dermosil sold exclusively to hospitals. Hospital staff fell in love with the effective products that were suitable for sensitive skin and wanted to use them as part of their home skincare as well.
As a result, Finland’s first ever – online shop was established in 1996, together with the skin-friendly Dermosil brand. Today, Dermosil is no longer exclusively available for selected professionals, but a premium skincare range available for everyone. Dermosil.fi is one of the very first online cosmetics shops and the products are only available online.
The new Dermosil factory and headquarters in Korsnäs
Dermosil’s new factory and headquarters are located in Ostrobothnia, in Korsnäs, which is a UNESCO World Heritage area. At the Korsnäs factory, Dermosil will manufacture a majority of its soap products. The first products have already been manufactured.
By keeping the production local, Dermosil is to able minimise their carbon footprint. Dermosil’s subcontractors must meet strict criteria and be committed to share environmental goals.
