John Lewis extends Clipper fulfilment partnership

John Lewis has signed a contract with Clipper Logistics to provide additional e-commerce and store replenishment services from a new distribution centre in Bardon, near Leicester

The logistics and e-commerce fulfilment company said the new contract would create 200 new jobs.

The next phase in the retail giant’s joint venture with Clipper will extend operations for a minimum of three years. The Bardon facility comprises 317,000 square feet of warehousing space.

The companies expect the Bardon operation will go live later this month.

The additional facility follows work provided by Clipper back in Autumn / Winter of 2020 to support John Lewis’ e-commerce and store replenishment as part of its peak relief operation last Christmas.

Mark Robinson, supply chain director at John Lewis said: "John Lewis are pleased to extend our long-standing relationship of over 20 years with Clipper who continue to have an excellent reputation for delivering rapid and effective logistics solutions. We look forward to continuing our collaborative working relationship in the years to come.”

Steve Parkin, executive chairman of Clipper, said: "We are delighted to extend our relationship with John Lewis and remain proud to support their e-commerce and store replenishment operations. Clipper is very much the go-to provider of end-to-end services in the online retailing space.”
