HONG KONG's Kerry Logistics Network announced that it has fulfilled a global supply chain contract with UK-based family-owned costume business Smiffys by setting up a worldwide distribution centre (DC) in Ningbo.

From the Ningbo facility, Smiffys will supervise a pick and pack operation to supply their overseas markets.



Kerry will provide global freight forwarding services including ocean freight and supply chain solutions from China into the UK, Germany, Australia and the US.



'We are delighted to be working with Smiffys to be a long-term partner in their continued overseas growth. It's a great showcase for Kerry given the complexity of integrating Kerry WMS system with our PO Management tool enabling total visibility of stock from factory to final destination,' said Kerry strategic sales chief Emma Rowlands.



Kerry will also manage the purchase order management and visibility solutions for Smiffys via the Virtual Buying Office (VBO), a web-platform designed to enhance efficiency and visibility across the company's supply chain.



Said Smiffys global logistics chief Ross Johnson: 'Ningbo will be our main stockholding location and from there we will distribute our other distribution centres in the UK, Germany, Australia and the US. This will give us a cost-saving, improve our lead time and help us supply our fastest growing markets in Australia and the US.'



Smiffys was founded in 1894 and has a portfolio of more than 7,500 products, employing 250 worldwide in offices and warehouses worldwide.
