Distribution services for both stores and online proposition
Kerry Logistics has secured a contract with House of Fraser, the UK and Ireland’s premium department store group, to support the retailer’s store and eCommerce expansion into China through the course of 2016.
The retailer is partnering with Kerry Logistics for its China distribution services, for both its stores and online proposition. Kerry’s expertise and local knowledge will be invaluable to the Company as it establishes a presence in the region and brings its premium shopping experience to consumers in China.
Kerry Logistics will operate more than 9,000 m2 of warehousing for the group in Shanghai, providing import agency services, import customs brokerage, and domestic distribution and eFulfilment.
Value-added services will range from re-conditioning of consumer returns to product localisation.
House of Fraser is set to open stores across China, with the first three in Nanjing, Chongqing, and Xuzhou, and they also plan to launch an on-line portal in the country as part of ongoing expansion plans following its acquisition by Sanpower Group last year.
