Fashion win for Keswick’s joint venture in Poland

Keswick Vector SCM Polska has won a three-year contract with Esotiq & Henderson– the country’s leading specialist lingerie and underwear retail chain.

The dedicated open-book contract is based at the joint venture’s 65,000 sq ft distribution centre at ProLogis Park in Gdansk.

It covers the warehousing and distribution of some 6,000 Esotiq & Henderson lines to approximately 150 outlets across Poland – a combination of the retailer’s own and franchised shops, plus wholesalers. The joint venture is also providing added value services, including placing lingerie on hangers and labelling, along with picking and packing for courier despatch.

Keswick Vector SCM Polska is a joint venture between UK-based Keswick Enterprises and Vector Global Logistics of Poland.

Keswick Enterprises’ chairman John Harvey said: “We are delighted that our recently created Polish joint venture – led by general manager Marcin Gruchala – has won this contract to provide domestic logistics and added-value services for one of Poland’s leading specialist fashion retailers. Esotiq & Henderson is a dynamic young business with ambitious domestic and international growth plans, and we are proud to be helping them achieve their goals.”
