ASOS Agrees New £100million Contract

Friday September 6 2013

ONLINE fashion giant ASOS has agreed a new £100million logistics contract for its Barnsley base.

In one of Europe's largest logistics deals, the online fashion retailer has awarded a three-year contract to Norbert Dentressangle to manage its distribution worldwide.

ASOS provides more than 60,000 branded and own label products including womenswear, menswear, footwear and accessories.

With 6.5 million active users, it's the world's most visited fashion website per day by 18-34-year-olds and products are shipped to 241 countries and territories from its Grimethorpe warehouse.

The Barnsley base provides more than 1.1 million sq ft of floor space and is the size of six football pitches.

More than 1,200 people are employed there and ASOS is expanding the warehouse by 25 per cent.

Mark Holland, ASOS's supply chain director, said: "The partnership with Norbert Dentressangle will continue to drive the ASOS global service proposition, creating an efficient customer-focused experience, and supporting our mission to become the world's number one online destination for young fashion."
