If you’re not familiar with vente-privee, it’s a French pure play selling famous brands at 50% off retail price. And it does it on a big scale.
The company had €1.5bn turnover in 2013, an increase of 18% year on year.
120,000 parcels are shipped every day by vente-privee to eight EU countries and also to the US. It’s the number one fashion brand in France and the fourth biggest brand in all French B2C distribution.
I listened to Seb Bellone, Head of European Transport and Distribution at vente-privee, who gave me these stats at MetaPack’s Delivery Conference this week.
I thought I’d lay the stats out for you, so you can get an idea of the scale that vente-privee works on and how they deal with delivery.
