Online & home shopping specialist Shop Direct Group has signed a new ten-year contract with logistics & supply chain provider Norbert Dentressangle (ND), it was revealed today.
Shop Direct, the owner of the retail brands Littlewoods, Very, Isme and Woolworths.co.uk, employs ND to manage all product deliveries which require a two-man team – primarily furniture and white goods that need some sort of assembly.
ND controls the receipt, quality inspection, putaway, pick, despatch and returns management for ‘two-man’ products, with home deliveries carried out by Yodel, and due to the success of this partnership it will now continue for the next decade.
Mike Herald, Shop Direct’s Director of Warehousing & Returns, said: “We have a fantastic relationship with Norbert Dentressangle, based on their genuine understanding of our business and commitment to innovation and continuous improvement.
“The new contract reflects both the quality of the current solution and the strategic nature of our partnership with Norbert Dentressangle, which we expect to continue to evolve over the next ten years.”
ND employs around 200 staff members across two fulfilment sites in Wrexham, North Wales and Hooton, near Liverpool, which manage furniture and white goods deliveries respectively.
Over the last couple years the French-based logistics firm has hugely increased its presence in the UK and now manages supply chain activities for leading retailers such as Asda, B&Q, Comet, House of Fraser, Marks & Spencer, Superdrug and Wilkinson.
