Parcel delivery company Evri has won a three-year extension to its delivery contract with sports nutrition business KBF Enterprises, which now includes fulfilment via its UK, European, USA and other distribution sites around the world.

Under the deal Evri’s portfolio of international fulfilment warehouses - from Basildon, UK to Utrecht, Netherlands and New Jersey, US to Oman in the Middle East - will stock and distribute KBF’s range of protein bars and supplements. KBF own the Warrior brand of sports nutrition products.

The collaboration aims to help drive KBF Enterprises’ global expansion in North America, MENA and European regions, expanding its e-commerce offering internationally for the first time.

The partnership will also see Evri and KBF Enterprises slash delivery times to their customers by allowing KBF Enterprises to serve their customers from local bases via Evri’s delivery network.

KBF Enterprises’ customers will also be able to track parcels end-to-end, ensuring a seamless and transparent delivery experience.

Evri recently invested £11m in its specialist international function, opening express lanes to a number of international destinations.The company also plans to increase the number of express lanes this year.

Announcing the deal, the parcel delivery giant said that the challenging retail climate, impacted by the cost of living in the UK, means retailers are looking for other solutions and new markets for additional customers.

”KBF Enterprises has ambitious plans to increase its international presence this year and Evri’s pan-European network and expertise will empower KBF Enterprises to efficiently reach new markets and expand its international footprint. Evri will be supporting the retailer with its unique package of services designed to simplify international growth for businesses of any size,” it added..

Mike Roberts, Evri business development manager, said: “We are thrilled to extend our partnership with KBF Enterprises and support their ambitious global expansion plans.

”Our strategically located fulfilment centres and expertise in cross-border logistics will enable KBF Enterprises to offer their customers a faster and more convenient delivery experience, ultimately contributing to their continued success.”

Kieran Fisher, founder of Warrior and KBF Enterprises, said: ”Evri has been a trusted partner in delivering our products to our customers in the UK for many years.

”We are confident that their European fulfilment network and logistics capabilities will be instrumental in driving our international growth.

”This partnership will allow us to offer our customers across Europe and North America the same exceptional e-commerce service our UK customers receive – giving more people across the globe online access to the Warrior range of sports nutrition products and taking us one step closer to our achieving our ambitious international expansion plans.”
