Debenhams extends supply chain contract with DHL

The contract extension will add to Debenhams Direct fulfillment operations from the Debenhams distribution centre at Peterborough until 2015.

With Internet site traffic of nearly three million customers a month, DHL will manage a substantial proportion of essential processes from receipt of order to picking, packing and, where necessary, returns processing.

The Debenhams operation is set to grow in key phases over the next few years with volumes estimated at two million parcels this year, growing to four million over the next three years.

In addition, DHL has signed a three-year extension to its current contract to run to 2015 with Debenhams. The business will continue its existing agreement to develop and provide all Debenhams’ warehouse and distribution services to stores across the UK and Ireland. Furthermore, DHL will operate the new Sherburn In Elmet facility near Leeds that commenced operations in April 2011. It is anticipated that this new operation will initially generate up to 350 jobs.
