The dedicated open-book contract has been placed in a new subsidiary of Keswick Vector SCM Polska, named Vector Fashion Services Sp. z.o.o., and is based at the joint venture’s 6,000 sq metre (65,000 sq ft) distribution centre at Prologis Park in Gdansk, Poland.
Awarded after a five-way competitive tender, the contract covers the warehousing and distribution of some 6,000 Esotiq & Henderson lines to approximately 150 outlets across Poland – a combination of the retailer’s own and franchised shops, plus wholesalers. The joint venture is also providing added value services, including placing lingerie on hangers and labelling, along with picking and packing for courier despatch.
In addition, the contract covers international distribution to wholesalers in Russia, the Ukraine and the Czech Republic from Vector Fashion Services’ customs bonded warehouse.
The retailer’s logistics services were previously provided by LPP SA – the major Polish retail group and former owner of the ‘Henderson’ and ‘Esotiq’ brands – initially directly and subsequently on an outsourced basis. Since the start of 2011, Esotiq & Henderson has been an independent quoted company, with Joanna Krupa – the famous Polish model – as its public face.
Commenting on the new business win, Keswick Enterprises’ Chairman, John Harvey CBE, said: “We are delighted that our recently created Polish joint venture – led by General Manager Marcin Gruchala – has won this contract to provide domestic logistics and added-value services for one of Poland’s leading specialist fashion retailers. Esotiq & Henderson is a dynamic young business with ambitious domestic and international growth plans, and we are proud to be helping them achieve their goals.”
Keswick Vector SCM Polska is building on Keswick group’s international logistics experience in the clothing and textiles, automotive, food & grocery and other FMCG sectors, to develop an effective alternative for domestic and multi-national retailers and manufacturers seeking quality logistics outsourcing solutions in Poland. The company is 52% owned by Keswick Enterprises and 48% by Vector Global Logistics.
