DHL Supply Chain is expanding its European Fulfillment Network by offering online retailers access to its 30 DHL e-fulfillment centers across Europe.
These sites are strategically located near major cities and urban centers, which process, pack and ship orders.
The network scheme has been helpful in offering a “seamless” supply chain transition post-Brexit.
Hendrik Venter, CEO DHL Supply Chain, said: “Typically, small and medium-sized shops lack the capacity to be present in each European country, which keeps them distanced from consumers and markets.
“Even larger retailers find maintaining that kind of presence is often financially heavy from a cash flow perspective or not cost-effective. In response, we are now offering vendors and online shops a multi-user network solution.”
He added: “This gives customers access to all of our established services in a way that is flexible and tailored to their needs. We can support customers across the entire supply chain – from inbound handling and storage, pick and pack, last-mile delivery as well as returns handling.
“Customers particularly appreciate how we can scale-up this flexibly according to actual order volumes, as well as nationally and internationally.”
José Nava, CEO DHL Supply Chain UK & Ireland, said: “We understand the needs of our customers, and the demand of their end-consumers, and they require a seamless e-comm fulfillment solution with or without Brexit and that is our aim.”
