DHL given Terry De Havilland distribution deal
DHL has been awarded a 12 month contract with Terry De Havilland, the high fashion shoe designer, to fulfil end-to-end supply chain requirements for their recently launched ready-to-wear line. DHL Supply Chain, Express and Freight divisions will work together to provide a tailored solution fulfilling the transportation, storage and delivery of Terry De Havilland’s designer footwear.
The product will be collected from point of manufacture in Spain and delivered directly around the world to consumers purchasing online, as well as to selected retail outlets where the shoes are stocked, or to DHL Supply Chain’s facility in Barking, London for onward distribution within the UK.
Terry De Havilland’s recent growth led to the decision to outsource its Logistics for the first time, allowing the brand to focus on its core business. In the process, Terry De Havilland’s customers will benefit from increased service levels and improved product availability.
Darren Spurling, managing director of Terry De Havilland said: “The agreement with DHL marks a new era for us. The professionalism and quality of DHL’s solution is synonymous with our own product, and has given greater accessibility and availability to the recently introduced Terry De Havilland ready to wear line.”
Speaking on behalf of DHL Fashion, Roger Burns added: “This deal demonstrates our capacity to support international retailers who are offering high quality product at lower volumes. By combining our global scale with an intimate local knowledge, we are able to create cross border synergies which are a real benefit to our customers.”
