Damaris Turns to Menlo for Quality Distribution Services

Amsterdam— June 13, 2011—Menlo Worldwide Logistics, the global logistics subsidiary of Con-way Inc., will carry out logistics, warehousing and distribution services for the UK-based quality lingerie producer Damaris.

The appointment of Menlo is designed to improve the fashion house’s delivery service to customers by shortening order turn-around times and enhancing reliability of its supply chain.

Louisa Jarman, sales director of Damaris said, "Our customers are wide-ranging in nature, from large department stores to high-street retailers to individuals ordering online. However they are similar in their demand for a quality delivery service comparable to our superior product range. It was to meet these criteria, as well as provide the geographical scope that our international market requires, that we selected Menlo.”"

After receiving merchandise from Damaris' manufacturing plants in Asia at its Swindon, UK, facility, Menlo provides a range of value-added services including labelling, kimball tagging (a small punched card attached to the merchandise that is detached at the point of sale to provide machine readable sales data), gusseting and pricing of individual garments. Menlo then processes all orders before shipping them to Damaris customers. This includes supplying and dove-tailing with Damaris’ existing distributor networks in Asia and the United States.
