French Connection is a world renowned international brand offering fashion-forward clothing ranges through both their own extensive network of retail stores and high quality wholesale partners. It required a logistics partner that could commit to delivering proactive and efficient solutions to support its ongoing business objectives.

Together, Kuehne + Nagel and French Connection will embark on a strategic plan of continuous improvement, utilising the KN Production System (KNPS), an in-house developed structured methodology based on lean supply chain principles. KNPS aims - among other goals - to increase efficiency, profitability and service quality and to standardise processes and systems as well as organisation and performance measurement. The implementation of KNPS was a key factor in French Connectionís decision to work with Kuehne + Nagel.

Steve Prangnell, Head of Supply Chain & Logistics, French Connection explained,ďWe moved into our current facility 5 years ago and felt that it was time to look at what we were doing and drive towards a leaner model. It is important during these challenging times that we maintain our service offering to our customers, but drive costs down. Kuehne + Nagel displayed the same principles throughout the whole tender process and is well equipped with KNPS to be able to meet our goals.Ē

The operation is based at a 13,000m2 facility near Thurrock in Essex, ideally located in close proximity to London. At Thurrock, Kuehne + Nagel will be responsible for the storage, picking and packing of both boxed and hanging garments, handling approximately 7 million units per annum. Deliveries in the Capital will be carried out using 7.5 tonne rigid vehicles.

Mark Jenkins, Retail Business Unit Director for Kuehne + Nagel UK commented,ďThis new partnership reflects Kuehne + Nagelís ability to serve the challenging fashion industry with intelligent and innovative logistics solutions. We are delighted to be working with French Connection and look forward to a successful collaboration.Ē
