“It is fundamental to our business strategy that we have a global logistics partner that has the flexibility to react quickly to our demands no matter where the consignment is coming from or going to,” said Brett Young, operations director of Missguided. “Our customers receive market leading options together with a high level of service for a very reasonable price, therefore the initial stock movements are imperative to our overall customer experience.”

Emma Rowlands, sales director, Kerry Logistics (UK), said: “We are delighted to be working with one of the UK’s fastest growing and innovative brands. Seamless transparency will be fundamental in managing the fast-moving supply chain for Missguided. Our VBO is a highly functional supply chain management tool linking together all supply chain partners into one global system, optimising information flow and efficiency, and thus minimising risks along the supply chain.”
