Denmark’s DSV and Gymshark have entered into a partnership to enable Gymshark to meet growing international sales, complex supply chain requirements and customer expectations. As a logistics and transport partner of the British fitness community and apparel brand, Gymshark, DSV will play a key role in supporting the company’s ambitious growth strategy.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Gymshark and entrusted with supporting it in the next phase of its exciting growth story. It became apparent early on that Gymshark and DSV shared several synergies and were aligned in drawing on our combined expertise to achieve the best possible results. As Gymshark’s business grows, its supply chain requirements have become increasingly complex, placing additional emphasis on the need for robust logistics services. DSV’s operational expertise, global capabilities, infrastructure and IT solutions will provide reliability and visibility across Gymshark’s entire supply chain. I hope this marks the start of a long-standing partnership,” Morten Landry, managing director, Air & Sea, DSV UK, said.

We’re looking forward to an excellent working partnership with them as our global logistics and transport supplier,” Zac Singh, sourcing director for Gymshark, said.
