-New, £100 million+, three year logistics contract with global on-line fashion retailer ASOS

-Recognising Norbert Dentressangle’s proven e-commerce expertise
-Further reinforcing Norbert Dentressangle’s position as one of the UK’s leading logistics and transport providers.

ASOS offers over 60,000 branded and own label product lines across womenswear, menswear, footwear, accessories, jewellery and beauty, with approximately 1,500 new product lines being introduced each week. With 6.5 million active users, ASOS.com is the world’s most visited fashion web site, per day, by 18-34 year olds, and ships to customers in 241 countries and territories from the global distribution centre in Barnsley. In the three months to the end of May 2013, ASOS achieved sales of £194 million – a 45% increase on 2012.

“Our experience in successful major TUPE transfers also comes into play and we have worked closely with all parties to ensure a smooth transition, both for ASOS and those working on the contract. “Both we and ASOS operate on an increasingly global basis and we are confident that this new contract marks the beginning of a long-term, strategic partnership between our two companies.”
