Clipper Logistics plc is pleased to announce that it has signed a new 10 year contract with The John Lewis Partnership to provide a range of retail supply chain management services from a new distribution centre at Grange Park, Northampton. This news follows an initial announcement made in March last year.
The new distribution centre, acquired by Clipper earlier this year specifically for John Lewis, will provide in excess of 500,000 square feet of capacity. Initial activity commenced in July 2016 and will support John Lewis‘ new distribution centre in Magna Park, Milton Keynes.
The site will not only be the National Returns Centre for John Lewis, managing all e-fulfilment and store returns, but will also provide pre retailing services and a number of other ancillary service activities to support the business.
Steve Parkin, Executive Chairman of Clipper said: “We have had a long and close relationship with John Lewis which continues to develop on a number of fronts. We are delighted to be partnering with them once more and to have finalised this long term contract to enable us to continue to support their operations in the UK.”
