Hellmann Worldwide Logistics UK has signed a fashion logistics contract with Ambleside-based retailer Lakeland to transport its clothing and accessories products from India to the UK.

Hellmann and Lakeland have devised a contract that would remain flexible, as the number and nature of consignments are subject to seasonal changes, with volumes often tripling at peak times. It encompasses both sea and airfreight. Lakeland previously worked with Hellmann domestically.

Hellmann has 14 offices in India and ten premises in the UK. All goods are delivered directly from Hellmann's office in Kolkata, in India, to Lakeland's HQ in Ambleside.
