Clip­per Lo­gis­tics, which dis­trib­utes goods for re­tail­ers such as John Lewis, Marks & Spencer and Mor­risons, has ex­tended its part­ner­ship agree­ment with Asda, 10 years af­ter the first agree­ment was signed.

Asda said that Leeds-based Clip­per has a long his­tory of ex­cel­lent ser­vice and this con­tract builds on its ex­per­tise and ex­pe­ri­ence.

Clip­per will man­age ful­fil­ment for Asda’s Gen­eral Mer­chan­dise and Ge­orge prod­uct ranges.

Clip­per is cur­rently re­spon­si­ble for re­ceipt, stor­age, re­turns pro­cess­ing and on­line or­der ful­fil­ment from its sites in Don­caster and Oller­ton.

The orig­i­nal agree­ment be­gan in 2008.

Chris Hall, Asda’s se­nior di­rec­tor for cen­tral lo­gis­tics, said: “We are look­ing for­ward to a con­tin­ued part­ner­ship with Clip­per for ful­fil­ment of our Ge­orge.com e-com­merce ranges through their Oller­ton site.

“Clip­per has a long his­tory of ex­cel­lent ser­vice and this con­tract builds upon their ex­per­tise and ex­pe­ri­ence to de­liver for our cus­tomers. We look for­ward to the fu­ture with Clip­per in this fast paced, highly de­mand­ing sec­tor.”

Carl Muir, op­er­a­tions di­rec­tor at Clip­per Lo­gis­tics, said: “Our re­la­tion­ship with the Asda and Ge­orge brands has gone from strength to strength over the last 10 years, and we are de­lighted to be con­tin­u­ally val­ued as an ag­ile and in­no­va­tive part­ner.

“We are look­ing for­ward to ex­pand­ing to­gether with Asda, as in­creased vol­umes drive ad­di­tional re­source re­quire­ments, with the pos­si­ble ad­di­tion of a fur­ther pack­ing ma­chine in 2019. We look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to main­tain our strong ser­vice lev­els and re­in­force the ef­fi­ciency/ef­fec­tive­ness of our part­ner­ship.”

Last month, Clip­per signed a new part­ner­ship agree­ment with Ad­nams, the award-win­ning brewer, dis­tiller and re­tailer.
