Advanced Supply Chain Group (ASCG) has been awarded a logistics contract with sports retailer Decathlon. The contract, valued at around £1.0 million a year, will involve ASCG delivering a seven day a week, 364 days a year stock replenishment service to 23 of Decathlon’s 29 UK stores.
This is a significant contract win for Advanced Supply Chain and further bolsters the Company’s portfolio in the FMCG and retail distribution sectors.
Decathlon has very specific technical requirements in order to provide its stores the best quality service, and it felt that Advanced Supply Chain could best meet these demands.
Technology, such as work in progress screens, drivers’ mobile applications providing live ETA’s and advanced notice of issues to stores, will be a key part of ASCG’s strategy for delivering a fast, flexible, transparent supply chain whilst improving speed to market and tracking capabilities.
ASCG has sourced specialist trailers to enable fast and efficient delivery to all stores with varying capacity and loading capabilities.
The announcement of the Decathlon contract win comes off the back of a number of other recent contract wins by ASCG, including Urban Outfitters.
