Comet has outsourced its multichannel logistics provision in a five-year deal worth around £100m.
Norbert Dentressangle will manage the UK warehousing and distributions for the elecricals retailer, which operates 241 stores alongside a website offering both home delivery and click and collect services.
To service them, the company will run Comet’s Skelmersdale and Harlow regional delivery centres as well as two further outbases in Scotland and the South West. It will also look after Comet’s collection service. More than 400 people currently work in the company’s warehousing and transport operations.
Simon Rigby, Comet's supply chain director, said: "We are very much looking forward to working with Norbert Dentressangle, who we recognise as a strong partner, being able to support us not only with our day to day operations but also with their overall strategic thinking and planning processes."
The deal follows Comet’s recent acquisition, in February 2012, by Opcapita.
