Clipper, the UK’s leading high value and retail logistics specialist has secured a new contract with Shoedazzle.
The popular, American-based Internet retailer, was founded in March 2009 and has been serving its US customer base for the last two years. The retailer specialises in offering its online members an extensive selection of fashionable footwear and accessories on a monthly promotion, based on recommendations suggested by their on-line stylists.
The specialist stylist team includes chief fashion stylist and co founder, Kim Kardashian, well known for her role in reality TV show, Keeping up with the Kardashians, wardrobe stylist and costume designer, Robert Behar and London-based men’s and women’s wear fashion stylist and editor at Conquer, International Life and Spindle Magazine, Sara Darling, amongst others.
As part of the Shoedazzle’s future growth strategy, the retailer has taken the initiative to expand its operations in the UK, in a move, which aims to capitalise on the growing online retail market. As a result, Clipper has been appointed as the retailer’s sole UK e-fulfilment provider, in a new contract that will see it manage Shoedazzle’s entire e-fulfilment operation, including receiving stock from suppliers, providing warehouse and storage solutions and despatching via nominated parcel carriers to domestic customers.
Speaking about the contract, Nigel Hinds, operations director, Clipper, said: “We are delighted to have secured this contract as Shoedazzle’s sole e-fulfilment provider, and we look forward to working with the retailer as its business continues to expand in the UK.”
Nigel Whiteoak, e-commerce Manager of UK operations Shoedazzle, commented: “Clipper is renowned for its UK e-fulfilment expertise, and with its extensive warehouse distribution network, it was the obvious choice for us, as we set out on our new venture to conquer the UK online retail market.”
Clipper has successfully evolved its business to establish a market-leading e-fulfilment proposition, working with a number of high profile, national and international fashion retailers. E-fulfilment has now grown to account for over 25% of Clipper’s business and Clipper is now recognised as a leading e-fulfilment specialist in the UK.
