April 23, 2019 As eCommerce evolves into a complex and multifaceted shopping ecosystem, Europe continues to rank as the third largest market in the world, bringing in revenue of more than €340m in 2018. From Sweden to Spain, eCommerce in Europe realized double-digit, year-over-year growth in 2018. With the region projected to see steady growth in the coming years (compound annual growth rate of 6.9% by 2023), leveraging a global network of fulfillment centers to meet eCommerce fulfillment demands remains a key priority for brands and retailers. Our global network of facilities includes European fulfillment centers which offer strategic entrance into the European Market with centralised locations and access to major highways. Even as European consumers continue to move from offline to online retail engagement – like their counterparts across the globe – the two worlds are becoming increasingly interconnected, raising demand for omnichannel fulfillment services. This holds true especially for the leading product category purchased by online shoppers across Europe: fashion. European fashion retailers are increasingly encouraging in-store customers to meet their brand online, while simultaneously driving online customers into stores with services like click-and-collect. No matter where, when, or how customers shop, they have come to expect a seamless shopping, fulfillment, and delivery experience.
An important component of a successful omnichannel strategy is choosing the fulfillment or 3PL partner in Europe whose capabilities match your needs. A robust ecommerce fulfillment solution provides efficiency on a global scale, enabling you to manage your operations without being consumed by them.
