Bournemouth based Shears Brothers (Transport) Ltd are ensuring this Christmas is a real cracker, thanks to their continued work with a local, festive business.

The logistics business is helping to deliver Christmas crackers for Heart and Soul Studio Ltd who are a long-standing customer of Shears, an Owned Operation of Pall-Ex, having worked with the company for 10 years.

Heart and Soul Studio design and manufacture luxury Christmas crackers that are sold by some of the most prestigious retailers in the country, including but not limited to Waitrose, John Lewis, Fortnum & Mason, Ocado, Harrods, Selfridges, Liberty.

With over 40 years of experience, the team at Heart and Soul Studio settle for nothing but the best quality and integrity when it comes to their products and service, as this is what their loyal customers demand.

As such, it is important for Heart and Soul Studio to collaborate with other quality businesses, who share their passion for ensuring every detail is as good as it can be.

This is why their relationship with Shears has proven to be so strong and successful.

In fact, this year, in-spite of the Covid-19 pandemic, Shears has transported almost half a million high-end Christmas crackers as the nation prepares for the festive period.

General Manager of Shears, Paul Bulpitt, explains how his team have helped to support Heart and Soul Studio with their logistics requirements.

He comments; “We have built our relationship with Heart and Soul Studio on a strong foundation of trust, integrity and values that both our businesses share.

“Shears has the capacity and the facilities to support their requirements as their business peaks during the latter months of the year, utilising both our general haulage and Pall-Ex operation to ensure the right solution is provided at the right time.”

Everyone at Shears is grateful that Heart and Soul Studio continue to work with us, and we are hopeful that we will see the relationship go from strength to strength in the years to come.”

Supply Chain Manager Sofia Boletsi and the Logistics Manager Claudio Paixao at Heart and Soul Studio are responsible for the logistics of its operation.

It is Claudio who is the primary point of contact between the two businesses and he explains why the relationship with Shears remains so strong.

“We work tirelessly to produce the beautiful, high-quality crackers that our customers have come to love, so it is important to us that our logistics partner shares our passion for quality.”

We don’t have any doubts that our crackers are in safe hands with Shears and the Pall-Ex network and that they will be laid out in place settings at Christmas dinner tables across the country.”
