Arcadia in talks with Clipper Logistics to improve transportation
Sir Philip Green’s Arcadia group is currently in talks with logistics solutions provider Clipper Logistics in relation to a transportation contract for its store delivery network.
The fashion empire's transportation contract is currently managed by another logistics provider and consultations on Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment), also known as TUPE, which will start shortly once an appropriate process is agreed between Clipper and the incumbent logistics provider.
After the deal is completed, the new contract will enable Clipper to make almost 3000 deliveries a week with the operation expected to start as soon as August.
Clipper executive chairman, Steve Parkin said he is looking forward to “developing a longer-term partnership” with Arcadia.
The logistics expert has been increasingly tapping into the UK fashion sector by working with a number of leading fashion retailers including Marks & Spencer, Very, PrettyLittleThing and River Island.
Earlier this year, Clipper signed a new contract with lifestyle retailer Joules.
