In recent years the e-tail sector has shown huge levels of growth and there is no sign of this slowing down. In 2014 online orders in Europe surpassed £132 billion and that figure is expected to rise by another 18% by the end of 2015. But as demand increases so do the challenges in e-commerce logistics, fulfilment and delivery.

Our recent e-commerce white paper, entitled ‘Taming the E-tail Tiger’, discusses recent developments in the field of e-commerce, including e-fulfilment, logistics and delivery.

For many companies fulfilling online orders has become an extremely complicated process as they move from traditional multi-channel strategies to an omni-channel model. Flexibility is key in terms of fulfilling all orders in an efficient manner and Link 51 can provide racking and shelving solutions that can be tailored to the specific needs of either large distribution centres or the smaller warehouses of SMEs and start-ups and anything in between. Our design expertise coupled with the scalable nature of our innovative product range, means we can work with you to get ahead of the competition.
We offer everything from multi-level storage solutions and Pick Towers, to workstations, pick and pack areas for processing orders and click & collect cupboards and shelving bays in store.
We have a wealth of experience working with UK retailers and their supply chains to develop storage solutions that facilitate the growth of their online business and also project manage our service to complement the third party logistics partners these that these companies work with.
Whatever the challenge, we can help you find a storage solution to suit. Whether that means you need goods stored for short or longer term periods, to first in- first out or first in-last out requirements, or need an automated system – we can design a solution that works for you.
As our ecommerce white paper explains, in 2014 an estimated 920 million parcels were dispatched by UK e-tailers. Even after the growth in importance of other areas of e-tail like click and collect and effective returns management, efficient delivery of web-bought goods remains the cornerstone of any successful internet retailer. But as online orders swell, so do the related logistical challenges.
We can help e-tailers and logistics companies find storage solutions that overcome a range of distribution challenges, including last mile issues and reverse logistics to ensure the delivery and returns processes run as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
