The expectations of e-commerce fulfillment in Europe

The smart stock distribution system of byrd enables businesses to store their products in a warehouse of their choice across different countries, therefore minimizing delivery time and reducing shipping costs. The proximity to the end-consumer who ordered the product online enables companies to meet the e-commerce shipping requirements of the 21st century: free and fast delivery. This is a critical success factor for businesses. In fact, 88% of online shoppers are more likely to buy online when offered free shipping and 60% make their purchase-decision based on offered delivery options.

Meeting and exceeding customers’ expectations contributes to the satisfaction of their needs which drives customer loyalty and retention. By contrast, 45% of people who order online would not return to the same e-commerce page after having experienced issues in the delivery process, not meeting their e-commerce shipping expectations.

VAT implications for 3PL in Europe

One of the biggest hurdles when it comes to cross-border logistics is the correct classifications regarding VAT

Any goods that you transport across EU borders are considered, from a VAT perspective, as "intra-community transfers" while the arrival at the destination country is considered an “intra-community acquisition”.  This movement of goods requires you to obtain a VAT-ID on both your country of origin and destination.

This "fictitious" delivery is generally tax-free, so you do not have to pay tax to the tax office in either country. However, you must fulfill a number of conditions

An Alternative to Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) in Europe

Many online stores and brick-and-mortar shops choose to outsource their logistics to FBA because of its well-known brand. Although they offer low shipping rates businesses should be careful because storage is in fact quite expensive.

However, online retailers should also consider alternatives: one possibility is to outsource the order fulfillment process to third-party logistics providers which closely work together with professional fulfillment centers across Europe. byrd offers such a service, pursuing the mission of giving online shops access to a scalable and professional e-commerce fulfillment solution regardless of their size.

If you are looking for a European Fulfillment Network and an alternative to Amazon FBA, then you should consider byrd.

Fulfillment in Europe as a competitive advantage

Most online shops struggle to meet the high standards of today's customers, as they lack the resources to build their own logistics network similar to Amazon or OTTO. Moreover, they struggle with shipping in general since it is hardly scalable and most logistics processes are analogue, which makes it difficult to automate them.

byrds' 3PL services help retailers to overcome these challenges by giving them access to scalable logistics solutions that empower them to compete with e-commerce giants and meet their customers’ expectations.
