The new King of retail

The new King of retail

Nike, Selfridges and Hotel Chocolat are coronated as we discuss winning retail logistics operations in the latest episode of The Logistics Podcast. Guests include; Caroline Luxton, head of logistics at online retailer LoveCrafts; Prof. Neil Ashworth, CCO at Yodel & CEO of CollectPlus and Al Gerrie, founder & CEO of returns start-up Zig Zag Global.

What’s helping retail logistics operations survive this aggressive period of change and the lead the charge? Or just survive? We get deep inside the warehouses of online retailer LoveCrafts which is transforming the craft sector – from knitting to sowing – whilst tackling challenges in packaging and returns.

Assistant editor David Tran heads to Decathlon’s new warehouse location in Northampton to meet Barjane’s development director in the UK, Jonathan Buck.

David Thame provides a lively property update.
