International Logistics: Delivery, Returns and Stockholding

We help retailers and brands manage international shipment and returns of online orders.

Typically we help our UK clients answer the following questions:

  • Can I meet European, US and Australian service standards with delivery from the UK?
  • Do I need a separate stockholding of product overseas
    • If so, where should it be located?
  • What are the most cost effective delivery solutions?
  • How do I manage returns? Do I need local returns handling and processing?
  • Which products should I exclude from my range for overseas buyers?
  • Is a delivery duty unpaid (DDU) solution acceptable?
    • If not how do I manage overseas tax and customs?

We help US and other brands and retailers setting up European ecommerce and retail operations to:

  • Identify the best location for ecommerce fulfilment and retail logistics
  • Select the right outsourced partner
  • Implement the fulfilment solution

Please contact Will Treasure or call +44 (0)20 7961 3200 to discuss your requirements.
