L K Bennett is a British accessible luxury brand and shoe specialist. Founded in 1990 by Linda Bennett, renowned for her signature kitten heel shoes, favoured by celebrities and stylish women alike. 2003 saw L K Bennett with a small number of stores in the south of England being fulfilled from an in-house operation. However, business plans for huge expansion required a in depth review of their current process and the decision was made to move to a 'specialist' who could offer a complete solution to support their planned growth.
CML were approached to provide a full warehousing solution to support their rapidly expanding retail business. CML were able to offer a facility with scalability, in addition to demonstrated luxury apparel warehousing experience and the technology and distribution infrastructure required to support the brand's aspirations.
In the initial stages of the partnership, CML's focus was to provide consistent, timely and accurate deliveries to their expanding portfolio of stores. Once settled, a number of service improvements were introduced to ensure optimum sales floor availability at all times. CML continue to support L K Bennett's growth into new areas through collaboration, best working practices and system integration.
Today, CML continues to support L K Bennett's expansion with a full e commerce and wholesale solution. With key presence in international markets, L K Bennett operate through 166 branded locations worldwide including 114 in the UK, Ireland and LKBennett.com.
