Clipper wins new contract with Pep & Co

Clipper Logistics announced that it has signed a new contract with Pepkor UK Retail Limited which owns the fashion brand Pep & Co. Pep & Co is the first strategic investment made by Pepkor UK, a venture established in 2014.

Pep & Co plans to open its first store in Kettering, UK, in July 2015 and expects to have 50 outlets up and running by the end of August, selling family fashion and homewares on the high street. Under the agreement, Clipper will provide warehousing, returns management and other logistics services in respect of Pep & Co fashion, accessories and general merchandise from its distribution centre at Swadlincote, UK.

Steve Parkin, Executive Chairman of Clipper said, “We are delighted to have been selected to support Pepkor in the UK launch of its Pep & Co stores. This follows closely on the heels of several new contract wins for Clipper including a new ten year contract with John Lewis Partnership and the new Zara e-fulfilment contract announced last week. This clearly demonstrates the very significant progress made by the group since its flotation last year.”
