UK Strategic Partnership with e-fulfilment leader Synergy Retail Support agreed
Xpediator is delighted to announce the formation of a strategic partnership with the Northampton based e-Commerce fulfilment expert, Synergy Retail Support Limited (“Synergy”).
Established in 2009, Synergy provides bespoke B2C and B2B fulfilment and e-Commerce returns services from its 148,000 sq ft fulfilment warehouse in Northampton. Working with a broad client base, from e-Commerce brands to high street retailers, Synergy has a strong presence within the fashion, health & beauty sectors, and a growing presence in food & beverage, gift & toys, household FMCG brands, and general department stores.
Demand for Synergy’s e-Commerce fulfilment services is high and, as its Northampton fulfilment warehouse is close to full capacity, under the new partnership, Synergy will utilise the currently vacant space in Xpediator’s Essex warehouse in Braintree to expand. Already, some of Synergy’s clients have taken space in Braintree with discussions also underway for further clients to utilise space.
E-commerce fulfilment is a specialist and technology-led area of the warehousing and logistics market, one in which Xpediator is looking to establish a significant presence, and which is experiencing strong market fundamentals. This partnership represents an opportunity for both businesses to benefit, with Synergy making use of Xpediator’s logistics and warehousing capacity to expand its business. Xpediator is also gaining exposure to an important growth sector whilst maximising revenue from its fulfilment warehouse capacity.
Robert Ross, Chief Executive of Xpediator, said:
“Synergy is a great e-Commerce fulfilment company with strong management and an excellent technology-led product offering of excellent fulfilment services and more. Its client list speaks for itself and we are very pleased to have agreed on this partnership which has already started to generate revenues for both warehousing and logistics companies. We are looking forward to maximising the potential for our Braintree warehouse in Essex and then looking beyond that, to see where else we might collaborate for mutual advantage.”
Gary Rees, Chief Executive of Synergy, said:
“We have grown rapidly by consistently focusing on providing excellent customer service. Each one of our clients receives bespoke fulfilment services and we believe this has been the key to our success to date. Now we need more space to accommodate demand from our clients and by partnering with Xpediator we are joining with a much larger business that can support our immediate expansion plans. Longer term there may be opportunities to expand our e-Commerce and fulfilment services into new markets outside the UK.”
