Zulily, a US daily deals site selling equipment for babies and children, has launched in the UK. The free-to-join site offers discounts of up to 90% on branded products through daily sales events of up to 72 hours. It went live in this country early this month, with its first sales starting last week.

Now the retailer has announced a deal with Clipper Logistics Group to handle e-fulfillment for its UK online store. Clipper will receive orders direct from vendors and suppliers, fulfil orders and ship goods to customers’ homes in the UK, Europe and beyond. Clipper will also handle returns at one of its Yorkshire e-fulfilment centres.

Zulily’s UK managing director Kristine Kirby said: “It’s important for zulily to provide a positive customer experience, delivering items efficiently and offering convenient delivery services, whilst also building strong supplier relationships.

“We were impressed by Clipper’s can-do attitude and extensive retail and e-fulfilment experience. We feel the team is the right partner for our new UK venture, sharing our ambition and drive to take the business forward quickly and capably.”

Clipper managing director Tony Mannix said: “We’re looking forward to working with zulily, using our ability and agility to help them achieve rapid growth during their first year in the UK.”

Clipper Logistics Group employs 2,500 people in 32 UK and European distribution centres. Its existing clients include John Lewis, Asda/George, Tesco and New Look.
