Asda has worked with Clipper Logistics since 2008. The partnership agreement has been a successful collaboration, with Clipper managing online order fulfilment and returns, storage and receipts from its sites in Ollerton and Doncaster.
Continuing a successful partnership
Asda's senior director for central logistics, Chris Hall said: “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, said: “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.”
Clipper Logistics upgraded its Ollerton site to further develop its supply chain offering to Asda. During a 16-week project, the warehouse system was upgraded, several conveyors were installed and a new team was both recruited and trained. Further to these physical developments, Clipper also integrated its warehouse management system with ASDA’s IT systems providing additional support to the customer order process.
