Chorley-headquartered, fulfilmentcrowd, has opened three new sites in the UK and Europe.
The international fulfilment services provider has opened new centres in Yorkshire, France and the Netherlands, which will increase overall capacity by around 48% during the next 12 months.
The new 28,000ft2 Yorkshire centre is located in Belton and will serve a growing base of Northern-based SME retailers. The European centres in Lieusaint, France and Born, Netherlands, provide fulfilmentcrowd with 150,000ft2 of additional space to support growing UK exports, as well as helping drive the company’s European expansion.
“During the past 12 months, we’ve seen 67% growth in the number of e-commerce SME retailers we’re working with,” revealed Lee Thompson, Managing Director at fulfilmentcrowd. “UK-based SME retailers are increasingly targeting international e-commerce consumers and want this to be affordable and hassle-free. Growing our global presence achieves this by eradicating the need for British e-commerce retailers to worry about any complexities, excessive costs and delays of cross-border trading, whether that’s within the EU or beyond.”
fulfilmentcrowd’s Yorkshire site will be operated in partnership with Connect Warehousing, which has joined fulfilmentcrowd’s ‘Fulfilment Partner Network’. The Network provides warehouse operators with the opportunity to optimise warehouse space by cost effectively allocating under-utilised space to SME e-commerce retailers that they may not traditionally work with as they trade under specified minimum volume requirements.
