New warehouse for Fullers as the UK e-commerce market booms

Retail Times recently reported that, despite the reopening of their physical stores across England on June 15th, online retail sales increased by a staggering 71%* year on year, which is the highest growth ever recorded for this group.

One thing is for sure, the coronavirus pandemic has dramatically changed the way people shop…

In a bid to keep attracting customers, more and more stores are moving online, or improving their online retail journey. This situation has created a growing requirement for additional warehouse space and fast, cost-effective fulfilment and distribution. As always, Fullers has equally acted fast to meet the needs of UK business.

Accommodating the growing e-commerce industry

Fullers latest 40,000ft fulfilment warehouse is our fourth facility, accommodating a flourishing client list which includes Mars Wrigley, BMW, and SMEs from a diverse range of sectors, including luxury goods, industrial supplies, wholesale and manufacturing.

All our shared-use facilities provide high-quality e-commerce order fulfilment using top-tier technology with pre-built integrations at an affordable price.

Agile, scalable, and flexible storage and distribution services for a new world

The UK now has the most advanced e-commerce market in Europe, and e-commerce revenue in 2018 amounted to £688.4 billion.

Tony Dempsey, divisional managing director, Fullers Logistics, said:

“As more shopping moves online, e-commerce companies are looking for flexible storage and distribution services and we’re seeing an increase in demand.

“It makes great financial sense because our clients benefit from a scalable and flexible solution. Our services ensure that our customers can focus on their brands, safe in the knowledge that Fullers Logistics can meet all their requirements.

“Agile systems and highly skilled staff are supporting our small and medium-sized e-commerce businesses across the UK as we all come to terms with a new way of life in 2020.”

Tips for your eCommerce journey

Commenting on the recent online sales figures quoted in Retail Times, Lucy Gibbs, managing consultant, Retail Insight, Capgemini, said:

“Multichannel retailers (have seen) online sales go from strength to strength despite a hypothesis that the ability to spend in re-opened stores would decrease the reliance on online shopping.”
