Arvato Supply Chain Solutions, based in Germany, has completed the acquisition of logistics service provider Quickly as part of its expansion in Italy.
Quickly is based in Angani, near Rome, and offers tailored omni-channel logistics services to clients, largely in the e-commerce and retail sectors.
Its clients have included AVON, Lamborghini, Vespa, and Yankee Candle. The likes of these customers are now going to be handled by Arvato. Matteo Borneto, Director of Consumer Products at Arvato Italy, confirmed that the company has “taken over the logistics operations for Avon’s traditional direct sales business [in Angani], as well as the fulfilment for the e-commerce activities”.
As part of the takeover, Arvato has taken control of Quickly’s 150,694ft2 facility in Angani, as well as all of its 102 employees.
