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.
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.
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.
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.
With byrd you profit from bulk prices and close cooperation with numerous shipping service providers. We partner with the top European logistics companies to offer your packages at the most competitive prices. With a unique European delivery system, you can ensure that your packages are delivered the next day.
Our focus is on ensuring that the parcel service providers are of the highest quality and paying attention to their reputation and popularity in their specific regions.
Would you like your EU or UK-stored products to be shipped worldwide? With our strong network of European logistics companies, we will be able to arrange the best price for every shipment. Additionally, there is no customs clearance to worry about.
byrd’s web application integrates with popular e-commerce softwares (e.g. Shopify, Shopware, etc.) and marketplaces (e.g. Amazon), which is achieved through seamless API-interfaces.
As a consequence, orders that are placed through your preferred sales channel are directly transferred to our system. This immediately initiates the fulfillment process, enabling us to ship the parcel to the customer right-away, without any action required by you. As a result, you can fully automate the complete shipping process of your online shop orders.
Our European fulfillment network consists of 25+ warehouses strategically located across Germany, Austria, Netherlands, France, Spain, Italy, and the UK. That enables you to close the distance from your end customers, achieving the ideal conditions for e-commerce fulfillment across Europe.
The expectations of your European customers are high - and we are here to meet them. Orders placed before 12:00 are picked in the assigned 3PL warehouse and handed over to our delivery partners the same day. The packages will be delivered the next day.
We work with leading parcel delivery companies all over Europe. Because of our long-term partnerships with these experienced partners, we are able to negotiate favorable conditions and pass them on to you. Additionally, due to our customers' large shipping volumes, we gain negotiating power.
When you transfer your goods cross-border you need to have a VAT-ID both in the country of origin, as well as in the country of destination. This delivery is generally tax-free, so you don't need to pay any taxes to the tax office.
