Clipper Logistics has extended its partnership agreement with leading supermarket retailer, Asda, for both one-man and two-man fulfilment for Asda’s General Merchandise and George product ranges. Clipper is currently responsible for receipt, storage, returns processing and online order fulfilment, with the one-man range located and fulfilled from Clipper’s site in Ollerton, whilst the two-man range is fulfilled by Clipper from Doncaster.
The original agreement began in 2008, demonstrating the value and continued success driven by the 10 year collaboration. The new agreement will see Clipper continue to provide warehousing and fulfilment services for Asda/George.
Chris Hall, senior director – Central Logistics at Asda Logistics Services, says: “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, says: “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.”
