DHL Supply Chain bags contract from House of Fraser

Aug '11
DHL Supply Chain has been awarded a five-year contract worth over A^£85.0 million with House of Fraser, continuing its seven year partnership with the premium department store group until 2016. The new facility provides House of Fraser with the capacity to support its ambitious growth plans over the next few years and will predominantly focus on store replenishment.

As a key strategic provider, DHL was able to invest capital in support of House of Frasera^€™s growth plan and requirement for high quality warehousing and related infrastructure, to drive an optimised supply chain approach.

The DHL team's knowledge and experience of the retailer's business was a key factor in their appointment to carry out this project.

DHL Supply Chain's Fashion division will continue to support House of Fraser's growth by providing an end-to-end supply chain management service for its stores from a newly refurbished 22,760 m2 warehousing facility in Wellingborough, Northants. DHL secured the property, close to House of Fraser's existing UK facility, and started fitting it out in April. The Wellingborough site will be fully operational by August, in time for the start of the Christmas peak period.

The existing Milton Keynes site will be used exclusively to fulfill House of Fraser's online offering. The retailer's transactional website services 32 countries worldwide and the strong growth of both online sales and house brand merchandise has created the need for an additional warehousing facility.
