Arvato Supply Chain Solutions is cooperating with the fashion and lifestyle brand GUESS. The international supply chain and e-commerce service provider will handle the online business for the new client. The company provides logistics services at CLIP warehouse center in Jasin near Poznań.
Arvato Supply Chain Solutions has succeeded in establishing collaboration with one of the most recognizable brands in the fashion industry. In a warehouse space of 20,000 square meters dedicated to GUESS, Arvato Supply Chain Solutions performs business-to-consumer (B2C) channel services, which means shipping individual clients’ orders to dozens of countries, both in Europe and beyond. Additionally, business-to-business (B2B) shipments are also included (e.g. stocking up the marketplace). In the first year of collaboration, Arvato Supply Chain Solutions will employ around 100 people, and during peak seasons this number may even double.
With the aim of diversification, efficiency, and the provision of a seamless shopping experience for its customers, GUESS identified the new distribution center in Poland as a crucial asset for reaching those targets. The opening of the fully dedicated e-commerce processing center is the result of a great example of cooperation and teamwork between Arvato Supply Chain Solutions and GUESS, achieved despite the unpredictable pandemic scenario which saw the birth of this project. GUESS is proud to announce that the new Polish distribution center completes the planned logistics footprint of GUESS for 2021. “This strengthens the omnichannel service in Northeast Europe and ensures distribution capacity for the next few years,” said Marcello De Melgazzi, European Logistics Director at GUESS.
