Clipper Logistics, which distributes goods for retailers such as John Lewis, Marks & Spencer and Morrisons, has extended its partnership agreement with Asda, 10 years after the first agreement was signed.
Asda said that Leeds-based Clipper has a long history of excellent service and this contract builds on its expertise and experience.
Clipper will manage fulfilment for Asda’s General Merchandise and George product ranges. Clipper is currently responsible for receipt, storage, returns processing and online order fulfilment from its sites in Doncaster and Ollerton.
The original agreement began in 2008.
Chris Hall, Asda's senior director for central logistics, said: “We are looking forward to a continued partnership with Clipper for fulfilment of our George.com e-commerce ranges through their Ollerton site.
"Clipper has a long history of excellent service and this contract builds upon their expertise and experience to deliver for our customers. We look forward to the future with Clipper in this fast paced, highly demanding sector.”
Carl Muir, operations director at Clipper Logistics, said: “Our relationship with the Asda and George brands has gone from strength to strength over the last 10 years, and we are delighted to be continually valued as an agile and innovative partner.
"We are looking forward to expanding together with Asda, as increased volumes drive additional resource requirements, with the possible addition of a further packing machine in 2019. We look forward to continuing to maintain our strong service levels and reinforce the efficiency/effectiveness of our partnership.”
