Danish transport and logistics company, DSV and Clarks, a leading British shoe manufacturer have recently unveiled plans for a 10,000 m2 distribution center to be built in Mainland Europe.

The facility will be operated by DSV at their existing operation in Krefeld, Germany, the facility is perfectly located within Clark’s main geographic markets.

The new distribution center is expected to be fully operational and supporting customer orders from throughout the European region by Spring-Summer 2020. The center will cater for traditional retail, wholesale along with online channels, resulting in improved speed and flexibility of their services and contributing to Clarks’ European growth strategy.

CEO of DSV’s Solutions Division, Brian Ejsing said, “We are very pleased that Clarks has entrusted DSV with this pivotal role in their supply chain. I’m confident our extensive omnichannel warehousing and distribution experience in the shoe and apparel industry will put Clarks in an excellent position to grow their European business”.

Regional Supply Chain Director for Clarks in Europe, Alexia Evans commented, “Having visited the Krefeld site and spending time with the team there, we’re very excited about this partnership and confident that it will drive long-term value for Clarks. Our customers want greater choice in the shoes they buy and the channels they use to buy them, and they have come to expect their shoes as quickly as possible. Opening a distribution centre in central Europe will help us to meet this need as we compete across the European region.”

Clarks European Region President, Ben Fletcher explained, “This is very positive news for Clarks. Our inventory has to be geographically closer to our focus markets on the mainland if we are to compete on delivery lead times. And of course, our delivery service proposition needs to come at a price that is cost-effective for consumers. The new European distribution centre will be a key enabler to unlocking growth across our digital and wholesale channels.”

The Krefeld facility is home to all three of DSV’s divisions and offers the full range of DSV’s transport and logistics services to support their customers’ complete supply chain.
