Clipper Logistics launches fulfilment services for Amara Living
Logistics solutions, e-fulfilment and returns management services provider Clipper Logistics announced on Thursday that operations have begun on a new five-year contract with Amara Living - an online retailer operating in the home, living and lifestyle sectors.
The London-listed firm said the new operation was based in Clipper's existing facility in Northampton, where some of its operations for John Lewis Partnership and other brands were already located.
Clipper said it would be providing e-fulfilment and returns management services for Amara Living, with the five-year contract functioning on an open-book basis.
The initial space requirement for the contract would be 140,000 square feet, increasing to nearly 400,000 square feet by the fifth year of the initial contract term.
“We are delighted to welcome Amara Living to our growing portfolio of international retailers,” said Clipper Logistics executive chairman Steve Parkin.
“Amara Living has achieved very significant growth since its inception in 2006, and we look forward to working with the team to support its continuing growth trajectory.”
