Ted Baker picks XPO to manage European DC

Fashion retailer Ted Baker has awarded XPO Logistics the contract to manage its new pan-European distribution centre. The agreement covers Ted Baker’s retail, wholesale and e-commerce operations across the Continent.

The Company is consolidating its existing distribution sites into a single site near Derby, which will operate 24/7 and will provide capacity to support Ted Baker’s growth. XPO will be responsible for warehousing, order preparation and e-fulfilment.

Chris Byrne, head of global logistics for Ted Baker, said: “We selected XPO Logistics because the company has the capacity and expertise to provide a reliable, single-site solution from which to manage all of our sales channels. Our agreement with XPO will effectively support our long-term growth plans.”

Ted Baker was founded as a menswear brand in Glasgow in 1988. It now offers collections for men and women, and has more than 400 stores and in-store concessions worldwide.
