Weight Watchers plumps for Norbert Dentressangle for its online order fulfilment


Norbert Dentressangle has extended the scope of its activities for Weight Watchers to include the fulfilment of online orders.

Weight Watchers is the global leader in weight management services, providing 50,000 meetings around the world every week, with around 6,000 local community-based meetings taking place each week here in the UK.

In addition to meetings, Weight Watchers offers an online shopping service for those customers who wish to follow the programme at home. Weight Watchers Online members are now able to order items such as cookbooks, electronic equipment, cooking accessories and food products, designed to compliment the Weight Watchers programme, through their online shop.

To support this proposition, Norbert Dentressangle is providing Weight Watchers with logistics and e-fulfilment services within its modern shared-user facility at Tamworth and is responsible for the end-to-end fulfilment of all online orders.

This new service offering is in addition to the existing Weight Watchers UK distribution operation based in Maidenhead, also managed by Norbert Dentressangle, which provides Weight Watchers leaders with all the products and materials needed to host their local weekly meetings.

Norbert Dentressangle is also responsible for the pan-European transportation of products from Weight Watchers European supply base into their seven distribution locations in the UK, Germany, France, Spain and Switzerland and to the Benelux and Nordic regions. 

Weight Watchers’ supply chain director, Duncan Aspden, said: I am delighted to have chosen Norbert Dentressangle to provide the fulfilment services of this exciting new customer service offering to Weight Watcher Online members. For me this was a natural extension of the excellent partnership we have with them.”
