We move décor products across the globe—by the container, by the project and by the piece. Our Logistics Team is involved in every project we produce and is dedicated to the planning, organizing and managing of our customer’s shipments from manufacturing to the point of delivery; either to the port of origin or a North American destination. We work closely with freight forwarders, confirming that all required documentation is complete and accurate. This ensures that our customer’s purchase orders are shipped per their specifications and in their required time frame. For our Retail Customers—that means each piece we deliver is floor ready and available for immediate sale.
Product Quality & Safety
Uncompromising standards have always been a key feature of our products. No matter the price level of the product, our Product Quality and Safety team ensures achievement of customer quality expectations. Our customers tell us we consistently deliver products that exceed their expectations and we feel this is due to our trained staff of quality control professionals, who are present in our manufacturing facilities and ensure our rigorous product and packaging specifications are met. These standards help Designs Direct stand tall above the competition: we make it right…we make it on time… and we stand behind our product. Just a few more benefits of working with our committed team. Designs Direct is a member of the International Consumer Product Health and Safety Organization (ICPHSO) and we have team members who hold certification in Product Safety Management from St. Louis University. Our trained team is current on all state and federal laws and regulations in addition to all relevant industry standards.
