Ship from our Italian warehouse and scale smartly with international & tech-driven fulfillment services
Online shopping in Italy has rapidly become a mass phenomenon, closing a few years' gaps with other EU countries and maintaining growth into 2022. Today, an e-commerce sector ranked 5th in the continent and 14th globally makes opening or expanding an online store in Italy an inviting prospect.
As in all mature markets, the quality of your e-commerce fulfillment in Italy is a key factor in standing out from the competition. That's where byrd's 3PL services come in. With our Italian warehouse, we bring you closer to your end customers and reduce delivery times and costs. Gain access to a network of fulfillment centers across Europe and a state-of-the-art digital platform.
Working with a 3PL partner established in the country where you sell your products gives you the opportunity to bring them closer to your end customer. Our Italian warehouse is located in the province of Pavia, in a logistics-intensive area close to major trans-European corridors as well as to Malpensa Hub Airport. From here, your stock can reach the rest of the country in 24-48 hours, traveling on the best transport routes in the country.
Opened in 2016, byrd’s 50,000-square-meter fulfillment center in Italy offers radio frequency-managed warehousing and packaging services for all types of merchandise. It operates more than 50 loading docks for container deliveries and tens of thousands of storage bins.

Like all the hubs in our international fulfillment network, our Italian fulfillment warehouse is qualified to handle all major product categories. Our partners operate with a full commitment to sustainability and actively participate in projects to reduce environmental impact.
Online shoppers' expectations in Italy are also tuned to the shipping services offered by industry leaders. Fast delivery is key for 42 percent of Italian consumers, while 35 percent are willing to pay more for next-day delivery. However, not all stores can provide the speed, security, and convenience guaranteed by the likes of Amazon and Zalando.
Here, too, our fulfillment services in Italy can enable you to bridge the gap. With byrd, you get access to a network of carriers that includes the most established companies in the Belpaese, and you can ensure next-day delivery after purchase across the national territory.
Do you want your Italy-stored products to reach every corner of the world? Our network of couriers spans Europe and will allow you to ship to any destination without having to worry about customs clearance or bottlenecks during peak periods.
With a growing market and high competitiveness, ensuring a great post-purchase experience is an important goal for e-shops in Italy. That's why byrd's local shipping services include serial number tracking, particularly valuable for electronics retailers.
We also take care of reverse logistics: your customers can use our proprietary portal and returns are handled automatically.
Post-purchase payment systems encounter greater popularity in Italy than the European average, especially in the South. One in six shoppers pays on delivery, with averages around 30 percent in Campania, Sicily, and Calabria. If you have a Shopify store, with byrd you can offer your customers cash on delivery payment with Bartolini within 48 hours of delivery.
