Fuels global expansion.

Evri and KBF enterprises announced this week, a new three-year contract set to drive international expansion for the sports nutrition business. KBF Enterprises, owner of WarriorÒ, one of the country’s leading sports nutrition brands has awarded Evri a three-year extension to its delivery contract which will now include fulfilment via its UK, European, USA and rest-of-world distribution sites.

KBF Enterprises will leverage Evri's strategically located fulfilment warehouses located across the world; from Basildon, UK to Utrecht, Netherlands and New Jersey, US to Oman in the Middle East, to stock and distribute its popular range of protein bars and supplements. The collaboration will enable KBF Enterprises to accelerate its global expansion in North America, MENA and European regions, expanding its e-commerce offering internationally for the first time.

The collaboration between Evri and KBF Enterprises will significantly reduce delivery times to their customers by allowing KBF Enterprises to be situated ‘in territory’ to give customer that localised experience, thanks to Evri's efficient delivery network and proximity to key markets in Europe and America. KBF Enterprises’ customers will also be able to track parcels end-to-end, ensuring a seamless and transparent delivery experience. Evri recently invested £11m in its specialist international function, opening ‘express lanes’ to a number of international destinations – it plans to increase the number of ‘express lanes’ this year. A challenging retail climate, impacted by the cost of living in the UK, means retailers are looking for other solutions and new markets for additional customers. KBF Enterprises has ambitious plans to increase its international presence this year and Evri’s pan-European network and expertise will empower KBF Enterprises to efficiently reach new markets and expand its international footprint. Evri will be supporting the retailer with its unique package of services designed to simplify international growth for businesses of any size.

Mike Roberts, Fulfilment Business Development Manager at Evri, said: “We are thrilled to extend our partnership with KBF Enterprises and support their ambitious global expansion plans. Our strategically located fulfilment centres and expertise in cross-border logistics will enable KBF Enterprises to offer their customers a faster and more convenient delivery experience, ultimately contributing to their continued success.”

Kieran Fisher, Founder of Warrior and KBF Enterprises, said: “Evri has been a trusted partner in delivering our products to our customers in the UK for many years. We are confident that their European fulfilment network and logistics capabilities will be instrumental in driving our international growth. This partnership will allow us to offer our customers across Europe and North America the same exceptional e-commerce service our UK customers receive – giving more people across the globe online access to the Warrior range of sports nutrition products and taking us one step closer to our achieving our ambitious international expansion plans.”
