Halfords, the motor and cycle retailer, is opening an additional 196,000 sq ft site at Crick with partner Clipper, in response to increasing demand.
The new site is close to the existing 325,000 sq ft distribution centre at Daventry which is also operated by Clipper.
Tracey Barley-Wild, head of logistics at Halfords, said: “We are delighted to be extending our relationship with Clipper through the introduction of this additional distribution centre. Working with Clipper enables us to provide an excellent service to our customers both in shops and online and we look forward to further growth being facilitated by their supply chain management expertise and true partnership approach.”
The solution provided by Clipper to Halfords includes goods-in, receipting, storage, pick & load and a number of other added value services to support both the 470 Halfords stores nationwide and its e-commerce channels.
Tony Mannix, CEO of Clipper said: “Our partnership has grown over the past few years and we are very pleased that our “agility matched by ability” ethos has added value to the Halfords logistics operations.”
