Hat trick of retail wins for Clipper Logistics

08 April 2015/Categories: CILT, Industry News

Inditex is the largest fashion retail group in the world. It has over 6,460 stores in 88 countries.

The new contract will see Clipper providing e-fulfilment services for the Zara brand from a new distribution centre in Northampton. The site will provide in excess of 340,000 square feet of space.

The Clipper operation will provide fulfilment of online orders for Zara fashion in certain European countries.

John Lewis

Clipper Logistics has also agreed heads of terms with The John Lewis Partnership to provide a range of retail support services from a new distribution centre, under a proposed ten-year agreement.

The new distribution centre will be located in the Milton Keynes area, and will provide in excess of 300,000 square feet of capacity.

Clipper is in the process of selecting the final location for the operation. Initial activity will commence in mid-2016 to support John Lewis’ new distribution centre in Magna Park, Milton Keynes.

Further updates will be provided as the project evolves.

Harvey Nichols

Clipper has secured a ten-year extension to its contract with Harvey Nichols. The retailer has been a customer of Clipper for ten years, and the new agreement will continue to see Clipper provide warehousing, store delivery, e-fulfilment and returns management services, in addition to other value added services such as hamper fulfilment.

Under the new agreement, Clipper will continue to warehouse and deliver to store all products retailed by Harvey Nichols, including designer clothing, accessories, wines and beverages, and all non-chilled products for foodhalls and restaurants. Clipper will also fulfil on-line orders and handle all product returns.

Manju Malhotra, finance director of Harvey Nichols, said: 'For the last ten years Clipper has worked closely with the team at Harvey Nichols to provide a first-class service to our iconic and dynamic business, maximising service delivery at optimum cost. We look forward to continuing to work with Clipper to ensure that our logistics infrastructure supports our ambitious plans, through continual evolution of systems and processes'.

Steve Parkin, executive chairman of Clipper added: 'Harvey Nichols has been a key client of ours for ten years, and we are delighted that our long-term relationship will continue. Harvey Nichols is a world-leading brand that we are proud to support, and our innovative approach to development of solutions for dynamic retailers makes us the 'go-to' provider of logistics services.'
