Geodis has established a five-year partnership with Kenzo, the luxury clothing company owned by the LVMH group.
Geodis has been operating Kenzo’s global logistics from France since the beginning of March. With a dedicated team of 70, Geodis is responsible for the reception, storage and preparation of the fashion brand’s clothes, leather goods, shoes and accessories.
Geodis’ logistics campus to the south of Paris, a site with storage and preparation facilities specifically adapted to folded and hanging garments, was selected to centralise these operations. Geodis is also supporting Kenzo in the development of its e-commerce sales channel by preparing and fulfilling orders. In addition, Kenzo is sourcing specific services from Geodis such as the management of raw materials, quality control and regulatory compliance.
Commenting on the business relationship, David Perruche, Logistics Director at Kenzo, said: “It is the ability of Geodis to support Kenzo in its international growth and both the modularity and flexibility of its technical and commercial offering that caught our attention”. While Neil Bird, Vertical Market Director for Retail and Luxury at Geodis said, “We already work with other LVMH brands and this new contract strengthens our partnership with the group at a global level. We are acting as their growth partner”.
