How to Ship your Products to the UK and Europe

afm order fulfilment uk and europeAn efficient process for getting products to the UK and Europe

Any business looking to develop their export trading into the UK and Europe, will need to assess the various options to decide the most practical and cost-effective solution for their company.
Some challenges your company may encounter:
• Shipping the goods from your local base can significantly increase the shipping cost per order and if you’re based outside the EU, can cause delays and additional costs as each consignment is cleared through customs.
• Keeping hold of stock in regional sales offices can often waste expensive office space, and more importantly, sales office time that could be used more productively.

So what is the most effective way of getting your products into the UK market?

For most companies, the most beneficial, time-efficient and cost-effective solution would be to utilise a UK based order fulfilment service, such as the one offered by AFM. At AFM
