In an era where fitness knows no bounds, Stakt's Co-Founders, Millie and Taylor, recognized the need for a mat that could keep up with the dynamic demands of modern workouts. As their workouts transitioned from the gym to their living rooms, they discovered that standard yoga mats fell short of providing the necessary support, adaptability, and appeal. Sweating through sculpt, pilates, and strength training, they sought a solution that could keep pace with their rigorous routines.
Millie and Taylor embarked on a mission to create their own solution. After an extensive process of research and design, they unveiled Stakt—a revolutionary luxury fitness mat with a patent-pending stackable design. This innovation provides unparalleled support, flexibility, and mobility for users in motion. Weighing in as a lightweight and highly compact option, Stakt ushers in a new era of versatility, catering to both serene vinyasas and heart-pounding tabata sessions. It can be folded once or twice for added joint cushioning and even transformed into a block for targeted exercises. Stakt redefines the boundaries of fitness accessories.
Stakt faced a logistical hurdle when they discovered that the container with their most recent inventory, delivered via ocean freight to the US, was not up to their exact standards. With a backlog of orders spanning over two months and an estimated delivery delay of 60 days for their next ocean freight shipment, the team was confronted with the daunting task of figuring out the best solution for their customers.
Turning to Portless for assistance, Stakt's luck took a sudden turn for the better. Acting promptly, we mobilized our internal resources to accommodate their urgent needs. We made sure our China-based team was staffed up to help and that we had the space in our warehouse to shelter their new inventory.
Remarkably, Stakt’s next production run was completed and delivered to our fulfillment center in Shenzhen within two days. Within one day of receiving the inventory, our team had quickly checked in, scanned, re-packaged, and fulfilled each outstanding order - over 1,200 to be exact. By nightfall, the parcels were en route to the United States. Though the packages were shipped from China, Stakt's customers received a USPS delivery, complete with local tracking numbers.
Instead of a shocking 60-day delay, Stakt's customers experienced a mere 8-10 day delivery timeline from the moment it left the factory, allowing Stakt to continue its dedication to providing exceptional service and products to its valued customers.
