El Corte Inglés becomes logistician for 100 brands
What: El Corte Inglés is taking new steps in its strategy of opening new business avenues through links with third party companies.
Why it is important: A first step towards a digital marketplace?
The group is currently negotiating with 100 brands to become their logistics partner in this field and assume all the processes linked to this operation from the beginning to the end, taking advantage of the capacity of its logistics platform. A kind of outsourcing by these brands, which before the lockdown were reluctant to sell their products on the Internet and have since done so on the El Corte Inglés website. And a boost for El Corte Inglés that comes with the recently launched mobile application, which has already exceeded 150,000 downloads, and the El Corte Inglés Plus service, a flat rate of 19.90 euros per year to receive orders in two hours with no shipping costs.
