DHL Supply Chain has renewed its “multi-million pound” contract with Debenhams for a further five years.

The renewal of the 20-year partnership will see DHL continue to manage warehousing and distribution for the retailer, managing stock for its online, click and collect and in-store operations.

As well as replenishing stock in Debenhams’ 166 UK stores, DHL will oversee the movement of the correct stock for online and click and collect orders out of three distribution centres.

Dean Wyatt, vice president of fashion and beauty at DHL Supply Chain, said: “Our renewed partnership with Debenhams builds on the successes achieved so far and focuses on activities that strengthen DHL’s omni-channel distribution capabilities to meet the evolving demands of the consumer.

“It further supports DHL’s continued growth in the retail industry and we look forward to working with Debenhams to introduce new initiatives to greater improve efficiencies”

Debenhams director of logistics Michael George added: “For the past two decades DHL has delivered a quality supply chain solution to Debenhams and we are confident that it will continue to do so over the next five years.

“With its breadth of capability and experience in delivering strategic change, DHL is well positioned to support Debenhams’ ambitions in the years ahead.”
