Menlo Worldwide Logistics (Menlo), the global logistics subsidiary of Con-way Inc, will carry-out logistics, warehousing and distribution services for the UK-based quality lingerie producer Damaris. The appointment of Menlo is designed to improve the fashion house's delivery service to customers by shortening order turn-around times and enhancing reliability of its supply chain.

In commenting on the contract, Louisa Jarman, sales director of Damaris said, “Our customers are wide-ranging in nature, from large department stores to high-street retailers to individuals ordering online. However they are similar in their demand for a quality delivery service comparable to our superior product range. It was to meet these criteria, as well as provide the geographical scope that our international market requires, that we selected Menlo.”

After receiving merchandise from Damaris' manufacturing plants in Asia at its Swindon, UK, facility, Menlo provides a range of value-added services including labelling, kimball tagging, gusseting and pricing of individual garments. Menlo then processes all orders before shipping them to Damaris customers throughout Europe and the rest of the world. This includes supplying and dove-tailing with Damaris' existing distributor networks in Asia and the United States.

“At Menlo, we have developed an in-depth knowledge of the garment industry and a proficiency in managing the supply chain demands peculiar to the global fashion business,” said Tony Gunn, Menlo's Managing Director Europe. “We are delighted to bring these skills to bear on behalf of Damaris within our multi-user warehouse facility in Swindon.”

Through the addition of Damaris to its portfolio, Menlo is advancing its range of value-added logistics services that are pertinent to the fashion industry in general and the lingerie sector in particular. Menlo is strengthening its commitment to the global supply chain of garments and aims to continue to grow within this specialised vertical.

Menlo Worldwide Logistics LLC is a US$1.4 billion global provider of logistics, transportation management and supply chain services with operations in five continents, including North America.

Menlo Worldwide Logistics LLC is a subsidiary of Con-way Inc.
