US sellers should utilize UK warehouses for European distribution, says UK fulfilment specialists, Go Fulfilment. For US manufacturers and sellers, having a presence in European markets is important for global sales. Goods can be manufactured en masse and shipped to one location where it can be warehoused and stored until ready to ship to individual buyers.
Fulfillment is where the orders are received, warehoused, shipped and invoiced without the seller needing to get involved with the process. By using a fulfilment house based in the UK, it provides a European base for export operations without high costs of setting up dedicated facilities.
Brian Taylor, CEO of Go Fulfilment states, "US sellers and manufacturers can reduce time spent on coordinating customer orders by having the UK warehouse organize the shipments. They can also avoid the high costs of trans-Atlantic freight due to customer returns or non-delivery by having the goods returned to the UK based warehouse."
By having a base in the UK, a US seller can receive international orders, which can be fulfilled directly by the UK warehouse. It removes the added time of dealing with complicated VAT and customs documents which in turn will result in fewer delays and costs due to customs clearance saving the seller time and money allowing the business's focus to remain on customer service.
US sellers can use UK fulfillment houses' knowledge of exporting goods enabling smaller orders from local inventory to be shipped more frequently. This can give the US seller a better idea of which products are most popular and stock levels can be adjusted accordingly. With real-time reports, businesses can make decisions on which products sell best in specific countries. This will allow the business to decide the manufacturing quantities in the future.
