GEODIS and KAPORAL have signed a new four-year contract for all the brand’s logistics operations at the GEODIS warehouse at Grans, 50 km north of Marseille, France. GEODIS will receive and warehouse merchandise and prepare orders for the 1,600 points of sale in France in a 12,000-sqm dedicated area at its logistics campus there. GEODIS will also prepare KAPORAL’s online orders, amounting to several thousand articles a day, at the Grans facility. GEODIS will handle a total of 10 million textile garments there each year.
To provide KAPORAL with high-quality services geared to boosting its growth, particularly in the e-commerce sector, GEODIS has revamped the entire warehouse, invested in special equipment, and completely re-engineered its processes.
Facilities at the warehouse, which is staffed by 50 people, have been scaled to react quickly and adapt smoothly to the seasonal peaks inherent in KAPORAL’s business like the sales periods and end-of-year holidays. The infrastructures in particular have been sized to keep pace with the highly successful jeans maker’s growth.
