// Yoox Net-A-Porter opens its £40.4 million distribution centre near Milan
// It’s the first time in YNAP’s history that a single hub will help to serve all of Net-A-Porter’s and Mr Porter’s global customer base
Yoox Net-A-Porter has officially opened the doors to its new “cutting-edge” logistics hub in Landriano, near Milan.
It said the £40.4 million distribution centre, advances its “omni-stock vision and furthers creative innovation” for both of its online retailers, Net-A-Porter and Mr. Porter.
The 54,000 sq m space will serve as a global distribution centre, and also takes in a digital production hub, with 6,000 sq m “dedicated to creative innovation and the creation of visual content for Italian and global luxury brands” sold on its sites.
It’s the first time in YNAP’s history that a single hub will help to serve all of Net-A-Porter’s and Mr Porter’s global customer base, “doubling the stores’ existing inventory capacity”.
Net-A-Porter and Mr Porter’s operations will now be managed from the Landriano centre for its 4.5 million customers in 180 countries around the world.
This means that the two online retailers will be able to double their inventory capacity.
The location is also one of the group’s “most significant investments in Italy in 20 years, and is a key component of the long-term vision for the business”.
