To celebrate the inauguration of its new cutting-edge 54 000 sqm distribution centre in Landriano, near Milan, YOOX-NET-A-PORTER has welcomed a delegation from the Italian Government for an exclusive tour of the facility. The delegation comprised Maria Stella Gelmini, the Italian Government's Minister of Regional Affairs and Autonomies, Fabiana Dadone, the Italian Government's Minister for Youth Policy, and Alessandra Todde, the Italian Government's vice president Minister of Economic Development.
"We are delighted to have unveiled our cutting-edge distribution centre in Landriano in the presence of the Ministers and Vice Minister. This new global hub for NET-A-PORTER and MR PORTER reflects our commitment to innovation and long-term growth, and to Italy in particular, the country where YOOX was founded 21 years ago. We are proud to continue investing in local talent and to constantly improve the shopping experience for our more than 4.5 million customers across 180 countries worldwide." - Geoffroy Lefebvre, CEO of YOOX NET-A-PORTER.
The logistics hub represents one of YOOX NET-A-PORTER's most important investments of the last 20 years in terms of logistics and operations in Italy, amounting to a total of 47 million euros: an operation that allows the Company to double the capacity of the inventory of NET-A-PORTER and MR PORTER. Leveraging a fully interconnected logistics network built around central hubs and regional distribution centres, the omni-stock model gives NET-A-PORTER and MR PORTER’ customers visibility of and access to stock from anywhere in the world.
As well as serving as a global distribution centre, the Landriano site also encompasses a Digital Production Hub, with 6 000 sqm dedicated to creative innovation and the creation of visual content for luxury brands sold by NET-A-PORTER and MR PORTER.
