Asos appoints Maersk as strategic global logistics provider

Asos has announced that Danish shipping firm Maersk will take over as its strategic logistics partner for supply chain management (SCM).

“We are very proud to support Asos’ global operations and growth ambitions,” Maersk UK & Ireland area managing director Gary Jeffreys said.

“We first started working with Asos during the pandemic, when we were able to support the business in a challenging market. This new strategic partnership is a testament to the strength of the relationship we built during that period.

“We can provide a global ecommerce fashion retailer like ASOS with the needed agility, speed and resilience in its supply chain because we are owning and controlling the assets along the transport chain from factory to fulfilment centres.”

The fast fashion retailer’s four fulfilment centres, two located in the UK and one each in Germany and the US, handled almost 100 million orders in the company’s most recent financial year.

Asos head of supply chain David Flavell added: “Over a short period Asos has built a robust strategic relationship with Maersk, bringing together two leading businesses.

“Together we have continued to focus on driving speed to market, helping us improve our customer proposition and support our continued growth.”
