Decathlon is one of the largest sports retailers worldwide and hold the same ambition in the UK. To achieve this, they are opening stores at an increasing rate and aim to have over 300 stores within the next ten years.
The contract has been agreed following the successful progression of a project for the transportation of goods to six nationwide Decathlon stores from its Northampton logistics centre, which was launched in July 2017.
Jason Stirling, Key Account Manager at GEFCO UK, commented: “Supporting our customers' growth strategy is a major priority for our business and we’re pleased to work with Decathlon further following the success of our initial partnership.
“As a business, we are constantly working to drive value across the supply chain. Our customer-first approach, and commitment to innovation, has seen us go the extra mile to anticipate and overcome customer challenges and we’re establishing strong relationships as a result.”
