Elanders Group businesses, Kammac and Bergen Logistics, have formed a new partnership to deliver a range of logistics and fulfilment services for the UK’s fashion and lifestyle industries.

The collaboration leverages the strengths of the two companies to better meet the diverse needs of fashion clients. This includes utilising Bergen Logistics specialised value-added service offerings (VAS) in the high-end apparel market alongside Kammac’s scalable retail solutions and support.

The partnership aims to enhance services for apparel brands of all sizes across the UK with a range of offerings, including warehousing, distribution, storage, e-commerce fulfilment, contract packing, and pre-retail work, all designed to be cost-effective and responsive to the needs of the fashion industry.

Spearheading the initiative is Kevin Rogers, head of Bergen Logistics UK. He said, ‘We understand the current challenges faced by the fashion and lifestyle industries and the importance of a reliable 3PL partner to support brands in navigating these complexities.

‘Whether operating under the Kammac or Bergen model, we are dedicated to providing solutions tailored to our clients’ specific needs. Our goal is to ensure exceptional service for the end consumer, be it e-commerce fulfilment, retail replenishment, complete omni-channel fulfilment, final mile delivery, reverse logistics, or value-added services.’

The integration of Bergen Logistics’ North Shields site will add to Kammac’s network, enhancing service for the fashion industry across the UK, by catering to the needs of both premium high-end and SME fashion brands. The 48,000sqft site, just 12 miles from Sunderland Docks and Newcastle International Airport, broadens the companies’ warehousing and e-commerce opportunities.

With a shared goal to deliver tailored solutions that ensure efficiency and adaptability, both Kammac and Bergen Logistics are committed to helping fashion brands thrive in an ever-evolving market, both here in the UK as well as supporting growth in other key regions such as the Americas, EU and Asia.

Mr Rogers added, ‘Understanding the mindset of the end customer is paramount, especially in today’s dynamic landscape where brands are navigating the constant shifts in evolving consumer preferences, supply chain delays and sustainability concerns.

‘With Kammac’s scalable solutions complemented by Bergen’s high-end services and cloud-based WMS technology ‘CloudX Systems’, we guarantee a seamless and customised logistics experience for every brand, irrespective of its size.’
