Retail giant Halfords has agreed a new eight-year contract with Clipper Logistics.
The latest partnership will see the Leeds-based logistics company provide additional ancillary services and warehouse space to Halfords at its distribution centre in Daventry.
The warehouse comprises in excess of 325,000 sq ft of capacity and has been developed as a multi-user facility, where the retailer will serve as a main customer.
“Clipper began its relationship with Halfords last year”, said Steve Parkin, Executive Chairman of Clipper. “I am delighted that we have been able to demonstrate our ability to act proactively as a team and to develop solutions which will make a real difference to the Halfords business”.
He added, “with Halfords represents a true partnership which we anticipate will continue to evolve. We are pleased to have finalised this long term contract to enable us to support their operations in the UK.”
Richard Street, Infrastructure Director at Halfords, said: “We are delighted with the partnership to date which has enabled us to consolidate all of our external storage and enhance pre-retail services.”.
Street said the firm’s other two distribution centres will be unaffected by this change and will continue their operations as normal.
