Zendbox EU Fulfilment Centre

Maximise your sales opportunities by accessing the fast-growing EU eCommerce market

Tap into the EU’s fast-growing and lucrative eCommerce market

The European Union (EU) is a collection of 27 different countries, each with its own complex systems for enabling fulfilment. Zendbox has been shipping across the EU for many years. We know which carriers deliver the highest levels of service for every order, and we carefully ensure that your goods are shipped using the best solution for you and your customers.

What does a 3PL EU fulfilment centre do?

There are roughly 450 million potential customers in the European Union (EU). A 3PL provider can store and ship all of your orders to the EU, so you can focus on reaching those millions of customers and growing your eCommerce business. Each country – from Ireland to Estonia and everywhere in between – has individual shipping regulations. Our EU fulfilment service handles all customs and duties, and arranges the most efficient carriers for each country. With EU shipping taken care of by Zendbox, it’s even easier to expand your target market.

Access all 27 countries within the EU

By partnering with Zendbox, you can store your inventory in one central location and access all markets within the EU – from Germany, France and Spain, to Italy, Austria and Poland.

Automated customs clearance

When shipping to the EU, there can be additional paperwork needed to clear customs. The team at Zendbox are experts in navigating this area, with all the information seamlessly passed on to our carrier partners for every order to ensure no additional work is required by you.

Cost-effective EU shipping

Due to the large order volumes that we ship daily – and our longstanding partnerships with world-class couriers – we benefit from the most competitive shipping rates. We pass these rates on to you and your customers through our smart MagicShip system to ensure the best value service for every order.

Fully tracked service

All orders sent via Zendbox are sent on a tracked service, ensuring you and your customers are kept up-to-date when orders are dispatched and, most importantly, when they will be delivered. This reduces “Where is my order?” (WISMO) queries, which means happy partners and even happier customers.

Why use an EU fulfilment provider?

By partnering with an EU fulfilment provider, shipping your orders to the EU and beyond becomes much simpler, straightforward and cost-effective for your online business.
