E-tailers Can Benefit From Outsourced Warehousing During the Christmas Shopping Season

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Nov. 16, 2010) - Studies show that online shopping is one of the fastest areas of growth for UK retail. The 2010 Christmas shopping season will help increase these figures with the majority of gifts being purchased online. E-tailers should look to outsourced warehousing for e-fulfilment to maximize on the increase in sales.

Economists predict that European online sales will surpass offline sales this Christmas season with UK consumers to spend the most overall. UK small and medium-sized businesses should take advantage of outsourced warehousing for order fulfillment of the Christmas season. The benefits of outsourced warehousing range from having all warehousing and fulfilment needs in one place to on demand inventory reports. And as the Christmas season is only a short time of the year, businesses can focus on the sales and marketing of their products rather than spending extra time and costs on man-hours needed during the busy season.

US businesses and manufacturers would be wise to take advantage of the UK online shopping growth. Fulfilment houses, such as Go Fulfilment, specialize in the distribution of goods and UK fulfillment as well as fulfilment to European markets. For US distributors using outsourced fulfilment within the UK, shipping times would be greatly reduced. This would enable consumers to do last minute shopping and still be able to receive gifts in time for Christmas.

Brian Taylor CEO of Go Fulfilment says, "Consumers are trying to get the best deals possible at Christmas this year. Online shopping seems to be one of the most popular forms of cost saving. Outsourced warehousing is the natural answer for e-tailers trying to maximize the distribution of products to consumers this Christmas season."

Using outsourced warehousing allows businesses and manufacturers to distribute to areas where they may not have had a presence before, allowing their businesses to grow globally. For more information on outsourced warehousing go to www.gofulfilment.com.
