Ecommerce Warehousing in Germany

Germany is known as one of Europe’s largest eCommerce markets. The country is also the fifth-largest eCommerce market in the world, and with an estimated 2023 revenue of $110 billion, Germany’s eCommerce potential is a no-brainer.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic, German consumers have relied more on eCommerce purchases, and presently, in terms of eCommerce revenue, Germany surpasses South Korea. Thus, as a B2B or B2C eCommerce seller, there’s no better time to explore the German market than now. However, before we begin, we must address the elephant in the room. 

Running a successful eCommerce business, preferably with global customers, requires partnering with an amazing fulfilment partner. This is because the fulfilment partner’s efficiency reflects on your business. Such partners are tasked with fulfilling clients’ orders and ensuring they receive their packages in pristine condition and on time. 

Warehousing is a crucial part of the eCommerce logistics chain. It involves the appropriate storage, labelling, packing, shipping and management of one’s inventory, and it is the bedrock of order fulfilment. 

Ecommerce businesses in Germany stand to lose a lot from partnering with fulfilment companies with sub-par warehouses. This is because, with Germany’s central European location and impeccable transport networks, the country is the ideal spot for warehousing operations. 

Bezos.ai’s Warehousing Services in Germany

Ideally, distance sellers and eCommerce businesses can deliver from their Germany warehouses to any European destination in under 24 hours, and with a fulfilment partner like Bezos.ai, this can be your company’s reality. 

Here’s what our warehousing services entail:

1. Order Picking

Once you choose Bezos as your European fulfilment partner and register with us, we can commence our world-class services, which begin with order picking. With our 63 fulfilment centres in 17 countries, we have the leverage to pick or receive your inventory from your preferred location. Our order-picking service can be achieved in several ways:

  • You can directly mail the inventory to any of our 63 fulfilment centres,
  • Or, we can pick up the inventory from your preferred geographical location,
  • Or, we can receive the inventory from a supplier or manufacturer to eliminate the intermediary. 

However, the stock should be sent to our fulfilment centre/warehouse closest to your customers to fast-track delivery. You don’t need to worry about maximum or minimum order volumes. We’re fully staffed and equipped to handle massive stock volumes, as the average international brand in Germany ships over a thousand orders a month with us.

2. Inventory Storage

Inventory storage is one of the most important parts of order fulfilment. This is because, if said inventory isn’t stored appropriately, it could be damaged and returned by the buyer, costing the company. 

At storage, the received inventory is sorted, assigned SKUs, labelled and stored according to type and size. For instance, electronics would be stored away from clothing or beauty products. 

We do this to ensure that each inventory type is stored in the best conditions to maintain its integrity. Our Germany warehouses are equipped with CCTV cameras and other state-of-the-art technologies to ensure the inventory’s safety, security and integrity. 

With a fulfilment partner like Bezos, you can remotely track your inventory as it passes through storage. 

3. Repackaging

Bezos strives to gift your clients a unique unboxing experience. This is why we aesthetically repackage your stock before sending them out for deliveries. Here, we’ll add flyers and attach invoices and delivery notes to the order, depending on your preference. With this service, your customers will have an Insta-worthy unboxing experience, elevating your brand’s consumer experience and visibility across social platforms. Our repackaging service can also boost consumer loyalty while promoting brand credibility. 

4. Deliveries

As an eCommerce brand with customers within and outside Germany, shipping might be the most important service to you, and at Bezos, we are meticulous with our shipping service. We commence our delivery service by retrieving said orders from storage and repackaging them before conducting the final inspections. Once everything is in order, our carriers handle the deliveries. 

5. Returns

No eCommerce brand hopes to experience returns because they typically cost the business time, money and resources. However, at Bezos.ai, returns are opportunities to build consumer loyalty for your eCommerce business. 

We offer a completely customisable and robust returns service that makes each customer feel accommodated, heard and prioritised. This way, they can be inspired to patronise your brand again as we’ve presented your eCommerce business as authentic, reliable and consumer-centred. 

This is how our returns solutions work. Once a customer initiates a return, we offer several options for a resolution. Your eCommerce brand will sign off on these options: a refund, store credit or an exchange. We will also document and update all information about this return on the Bezos Seller Portal, which you can access upon account registration.
