UK fashion firm Paul Smith has extended its relationship with international logistics solutions provider Geodis Calberson to expand its distribution service to all of its stores across France.

Geodis Calberson, the UK subsidiary of French Parent Geodis, delivers Paul Smith clothes and accessories - from bags and belts to perfumes - throughout France.

Geodis Calberson has a UK network of 11 sites, 340 employees and 65 independent licensees in the Fortec Pallet Network to a wide variety of businesses across France.

Jamie Cuthbert, managing director of Geodis Calberson, said: "The challenges posed by Paul Smith are varied and complex. In one season we can deliver as many as 1,000 shipments of high-value goods to France alone - that's 4,500 cartons across the whole country.

"We have worked in partnership with Paul Smith to ensure the service we provide is a best-fit to their business. The security and visibility of our service, and our commitment to proactive customer service, means that Paul Smith can have peace of mind that their goods will be delivered to the correct location on time and intact exactly when they need them to be."

Pat Wass logistics manager at Paul Smith said: "Based on the success of the Top 24/48 delivery service, Paul Smith will plan to expand this service to all of the stores across France."
