Clipper seals long-term Zara deal

Have your say

Clipper Logistics, the firm that distributes goods for blue chip retailers, has signed a new long-term contract with ​fashion chain Zara.

Leeds-based Clipper will provide e-fulfilment services for the Zara brand from a new distribution centre in Northampton​. ​

The group said the site will provide over 340,000 square feet of space. Under the terms of the contract, Clipper will fulfil Zara’s online orders in a number of European countries.

The deal follows the news earlier this year that Clipper has a strong pipeline of new business, which is expected to provide momentum into 2016.

The firm, which counts Asda, Morrisons, John Lewis and Asos among its customers, is benefiting from the growing popularity of online retailing.

Clipper said it saw growth from virtually all its e-fulfilment customers, particularly over the pre-Christmas trading period including the Black Friday weekend, on which it achieved 100 per cent of customer service proposition.
